The sound of drums alerted us that Concha dancers were performing today on Insurgentes here in San Miguel. These traditional Aztec and Chichimecan dances date from pre columbian times. Sometimes costumes can be less than convincing, but the group that this dancer belongs to, calling themselves Danza Sagrada Famiia, have taken great care to create dress that is historically appropriate.
