"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.
One of the most amazing places to visit in Cali is the Calima’s Gold Museum, a space organized by the cultural area of the Colombian Central Bank (Banco de la República). An important detail is that entrance is free. There is a vault that holds wonderful archaeological jewels made of gold, ceramic, stone and wood. In this place you can learn about the cultural richness of the different populations who inhabited the Valle del Cauca, long before the Spanish conquest, and understand their way of living and artistic abilities through the pottery and goldsmith exhibited nowadays.
Touring the museum takes about 45 minutes. In this time you will enjoy seeing more than 450 pieces of goldsmith and pottery that connect the people with the indigenous communities that inhabited this region. The most relevant piece in the museum is a sculpture of an indigenous man dressed with all the jewels that a cacique from the Calima Culture would wear.
