"The Biennial is a trip to discover new worlds and also to be discovered and seduced by new movements, lenguages and imaginaries to think about dancing as a way to express our emotions" says Amparo Sinisterra de Carvajar, president of the 2nd Biennial.
This is the Pacific festival, in which the most importat thing is to highlight the gastronomy, the folk music and the traditions of this region in Valle del Cauca. It is an awesome experience for the locals and of course for the visitors who want to dive into this culture.
This is one of the most important and traditional festivals in Colombia. In which the favorite attractions are the "Salsódromo", the "Cali viejo" carnival, the antique cars parade, the "Melómanos" meeting, the "Superconcierto" a really nice musical show, between other shows ans events.
Up north the department of Valle del Cauca, there is Argelia, a small mountainous, coffee and panela (sub product of sugarcane) town, located at the foothill of Andes’ Western Mountain Range. Although its economy relies on cattle raising and agriculture, it also offers spaces where its people and visitors can learn and get to know the culture of the ‘Medellincito’ (Little Medellín), a name given to the town when it was first founded back in 1904.
To take a closer look on Argelia’s anthropology and culture there is the ‘Casa de la Cultura Guillermo Zapata Ospina’ (House of Culture Guillermo Zapata Ospina), which was named after his founder. Here, visitors can take reading classes, workshops for kids and adults, homework help and reading rooms. Moreover, you will have the chance to enjoy a little tour around the museum to learn more about the place’s ancestor’s history.
