With 2,352 participants, the city of Arequipa recovered the record of “The largest Peruvian folkloric dance in the world” yesterday in the Plaza de Armas of the aforementioned city.
“The couples danced for six minutes in harmony”, reported Perú 21.The first time that Peru obtained this recognition was in 2014 at the Arequipeño Carnival, with the participation of 1,247 couples. However, in 2017, the San Martín region beat the mark by presenting the Moyobambina Pandilla dance, which was danced by 1,584 couples.
For more than a month, hundreds of people prepared to interpret the traditional song. Students from public and private schools, universities, police, collectives and pedestrians participated in the trials that took place at night in the main square of the city.
