Carnivals are synonymous with good times, mind-blowing choreographies, music and spectacular costumes. But under that shiny surface, there’s a long, complex and utterly fascinating history. Carnivals are a vehicle for the collective expression of a culture’s identity, history and creativity, which allows them to continue evolving as life-affirming acts.
This episode explores key aspects of the cultural history of carnivals and the common traits they share in Mexico and across Latin America.
