Fiesta Virgen del Carmen

A brief history lesson to honor the Peruvian roots of SUSHISAMBA!

Fiesta Virgen del Carmen is a 4-day festival that takes places in Paucartambo, Peru. July 16 is the central day when the Virgin Carmen (shown above) is paraded around the town, blessing all spectators and keeping demons away. This is all represented through cool dances and brightly colored costumes.
