A work in progress -where land begins-. Tell us the four agricultural festivals Pawcar Raymi, Inti Raymi, Kulla Raymi, Kapac Raymi which celebrate the different stages of planting and harvesting of the fruits obtained by - Allpa Mama - also known as Mother Earth.
Zhuracpamba is a community located in Azuay, Ecuador, where several indigenous cultures, including the Saraguros, Cañaris, and Paltas people converge from the different Andean towns of the country since Pre-Inca times to celebrate the Andean agricultural festivals and rituals typical of the indigenous worldview of the Andes. 

As part of the festivities, the community dances to the rhythm of the zapateo, a dance deeply rooted in the Spanish Flamenco and the Gypsies. With the blow of the bare feet on the earth and the use of ancestral plants such as Aguacolla, Ayahuasca, Tobacco, Coca leaf, Sage, Mushrooms—these participants are part of preserving their cultural heritage and connoisseurs of traditional and natural medicine for the care of the spirit and the body.
