Carnaval en Amazonas

Carnaval en Amazonas is a typical dance from the Amazonas Region, Peru. The "carnival music" that is played in Amazonas presents notes of real euphoria. It is similar to the huayno. At its times, couples dance forming the pandilla (a kind of dance) around the humishas - trees adorned with quitasueƱos, small mirrors, ornamental chain stitches and pennants. These trees are filled with gifts, including live animals, which the guests take when these trees are knocked down at the end of the celebration.

The couple that makes the humisha fall down in a Mardi gras celebration has the commitment to make a new humisha the following year.
