I went to the city park, in front of city hall, today to video the Banda Municipial. It never arrived, but just sitting for a while in this beautiful park was so inviting. What a pleasant way to spend the morning on Mother's Day, watching the families stroll through the park.
Andean rural communities have reenacted “The Passion of Christ” for centuries and Otavalo is no exception.  This video by Eduardo Teran and the community of Quinchuqui has some wonderful images.  Part 1 records the Palm Sunday Mass preceding the film.
Part 2 of “The Passion of Christ”  reenacted in Quechua by the pueblo of Quinchuqui and videoed by Eduardo Teran of Telestar productions is today’s video.  Even if you do not understand Quechua, there are many beautiful video images!
It has been years since I have been to the Quechua Mass on Easter in Otavalo.    The older people of Otavalo still take Easter very seriously!  It is the music of the choir during the Mass that I truly enjoy.  These are a few short excerpts of the Mass and the music.
The Ali Shungu Foundation was formed to improve the Health, Education and general Welfare of the people of five Indigenous communities.

  Celebrations in Otavalo                         
Well, I did not make it to the fiestas, but I did roam around earlier shooting the “anos viejos” that were to be dragged into the streets and burned at midnight followed by music and dancing until dawn.  Most of the masks resemble and represent political figures…..
I arrived in town this morning at far too late an hour to video the true splendor of Palm Sunday in Otavalo.  “Semana Santa” is the most sacred Catholic holiday here in Ecuador.  I did manage to catch a few last minute images of  this “Dia de Ramos”.

   Dia de Difuntos in Otavalo                              
This is a day to honor the dead.  Thousands and thousands of Otavalos visit the cemetery bringing food to share with the spirits.  Delicious black corn flour and fruit “coladas” with bread shaped as dolls and horses are traditional foods of the day.  

   Dia de Difuntos in Otavalo                                      
This is a sacred day, a day to honor the dead (see dia de difuntos  video) by gathering the family, taking food to the cemetery and leaving food for one’s ancestors.   It is traditional to take guagua pans, colorful dolls made of bread baked in clay ovens.

   Everybody Loves a Parade                                      
Sadly, Musica Nacional is less and less popular these days in Ecuador.  Not too many years ago, no respectable civic event, parade or celebration took place without a “banda”.   “Bandas” rock!   After watching the video, click here for a great sound byte.
