In the second block of national dance, it was possible to appreciate how this interculturality of the peoples of Nicaragua was knitted, from Managua with El Solar de Monimbó, masterfully performed by UNI, to mix with the northern culture interpreted by the Waslala Dance Group, who shared the northern and central culture of the inhabitants of Nicaragua, and then reached the Caribbean Coast , with the URACCAN Bluefields Group, which shared the spirituality, identity and knowledge of the Garífunas and Creoles peoples, where the tip and the Palo de Mayo, a clear expression of Afro-Caribbean culture, lived with the magic of the Afro-Caribbean population of Bluefields.
The group of URACCAN Siuna, also made a presentation of tango, as part of the culture of South America, that are rescued in the experiences of our peoples, and then recreate the mermaid, a beautiful woman who lives in the rivers and the Caribbean Sea, according to our indigenous culture Miskita, and then revive the soup in the meza of cost dimension , to close with the garifuna tip.
URACCAN Bonanza students shared part of African-American culture, with electronic music beginning to appear in the 1980s, such as Techno, along with the House. The House was born in Chicago, Usa, oriented to the African-American public, then in the 90s arrives in Europe mixing with pop, rising great popularity, but we were delighted with the cumbia and meringue that are part of the culture of our Latin America and the Caribbean.
