RWMF2019 BALLET FOLCLORIC DE CHILE BAFOCHI

The Ballet Folclorico de Chile, Bafochi, emerged as an independent artistic company in 1987 where it’s creator Professor Pedro Gajardo Escobar was inspired to showcase the origins of different cultures that make up the Chilean people.

The dances of Rapa Nui are a mix of Polynesian origins with ancestral legends dedicated to the gods, nature or warriors.

Undulating hips, expressive hand movements and spectacular costumes all contribute to the mystique and the harmony of the dancers and their artistry.
