Desfiles de Las Llamadas - The Calls Parade | 190207-1040363-jikatu

History goes that during the days of the Spanish colony, many African men and women were brought to America as slaves in order to fulfill tasks at the houses of the most remarkable families in Montevideo.

 

When slavery was finally abolished, these Uruguayan citizens began to form new groups and thus they gave shape to the neighborhoods popularly referred to as "Negro neighborhoods"...

 

Candombe was the rhythm that not only joined them together but also reminded them of their African past and held them close to their origins, to their history.
