We have taken our name from a ritual performed by some tribes of the Amazon, which is express by a procession of dancers and players of flutes and sacred trumpets. The artistic expression of Yurupari synthesizes the being and feeling of our people; with an original style Yurupari’s folklore shows the diversity of the traditions of the people of Latin America from Mexico to Argentina, showing also the cultural plurality of the continent; but equally trying to cut the frontiers, so as to portray with the beauty of movement, rhythm, music and joy, the true nature of the Latin American people.
The cultural and historic value of Yurupari encourage us to share with you the commitment to support it and to promote it, so that new generations of Latin Americans in the UK continue preserving the cultural heritage of Latin America, not only to Britain, but to the rest of the world.
