Program Dance in the city
Laloba: Literally translates to she-wolf. However, when capitalised, La Loba also refers to a woman of the same name who is prevalent in the mythology of the Pueblo people. She is known for collecting all that is in danger of becoming extinct.
Laloba exists in a dance of yours, when you hum a song and when you dream.
Laloba is there when you create the world, when you feel inspired, when you fall in love and when you admire something.
Admission to all Kalamata Main Square performances and side events is free for all.
