Las Cuerudas


I followed this group of young women as they were rehearsing to perform a traditionally male-only dance. It was one of the first times la danza de Los Cuerudos was performed by women in Los Angeles. Most of the women are second and third generation US-born oaxaqueñas, their parents are native to Zoogocho, Oaxaca.
