Latacunga Fiesta de la Mama Negra Ecuador 2011

Fiesta de la Mama Negra The Fiesta of the Mama Negra, which takes place in the city of Latacunga is one of the most fascinating cultural events in Ecuador. This public celebration of civic pride rivals Brazil's festivals as an emblematic "melting pot" of wildly divergent cultural traditions: Spanish, Incan, Aymaran, Mayan, African, and most recently, gay.
