Each of us are born somewhere in the world and we should be proud of where we come from. Having our own identity, no matter where we live now. As Peru, land of the ancient empire of the Incas, where the inhabitants sing and dance their typical songs, without losing their traditions pride.
An example of this is the Peruvian songwriter Gianmarco (Winner Latin Grammy Awards), wrote a song while living far away from Peru titled: “Hoy” made with all the feeling of loving his country: Peru.
In one of his concerts at the Stadium Monumental in Lima, Peru, Gianmarco combine his music and Peruvian folklore dance (see minute 3:33 of the video below), it was very emotional the concert dedicated to Peru, that near the end of the concert singer cry for his dear Peru. (See minute 8:35 of the video below)
A country without identity and traditions is like the wind blowing over the prairies without a trace.
Another typical dance of the coast of Peru, is “La Marinera“, is a dance where the man woos a woman in a very elegant way, see it you will love it. (See video above)
There are many places to visit in Peru, and one of the most important is “Machu Picchu”, one of the 7 Wonders of the World. Peruvian cuisine is also one of the best in the world.
From Los Angeles, California, I wish my compatriots a Happy July 28th (Independence Day of Peru), and Peru continues on a path of prosperity.
