Día de los Muertos, RVA, 2013
Danza Azteca TLALTLACAYOLOTL
Tlaltlacayolotl means earth, heart, man. We are descendents of the Aztec Tribe, from the center of Mexico where the Aztecs constructed their empire called Teotihucan. It has been more than 500 years since first european contact. We are a culture that have studied nature and the cosmos for centuries. Our dances reflect the cosmic universe and all that exists within mother earth. Our group is a family of four: father, mother, son, and daughter. Our dances and our culture have been passed down and learned through the generations.
This piece reminds me of : Jose Guadalupe Posada (1851-1913)
