Festival in Bolivia – level 2

08-06-2018 15:00

The Festival of the Feast of the Lord of Power took place in La Paz recently, which is the capital of Bolivia.

People organise the festival every year and this year, there were more than 40,000 dancers and musicians. A dancer said that all of it was done with great devotion. People dance to ask the Lord of Power (Jesus) for things like health.

Some costumes can cost as much as $20,000 – the festival is a time when people show their economic power.

Difficult words: feast (a celebration, an event), devotion (love and energy), economic power (how much money someone has).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
