Concheros

Concha dancer San Miguel de Allende

Concha dancer San Miguel de Allende

Each year, on the first Friday in March, the Concheros arrive en masse in San Miguel and the sound of drums echo all day and well into the night. The dance, which takes its name from a lute made from the body of an armadillo, has been revived as an Indio cultural tradition, and much time is spent in preparing wildly feathered headdresses adorned with the bones of animals and birds.
