The Diablada or Dance de Diablos (English: Dance of the Devils), is a primival, typical Andean masked dance. It is the main dance of the Carnaval de Oruro held in honor of the Virgin of Socavón Oruro in Oruro, Bolivia. It is characterized by the mask and devil suit worn by the dancers. Unlike other similar expressions of the Andes, it is considered to retain most of the artistic expression coming from pre-Columbian America. The dance is a mixture of the Spaniard's theatrical presentations and Andean religious ceremonies such as the Llama llama dance in honour of the Uru god Tiw (their protector in mines, lakes, and rivers).
