Dancing with the devil (diablo).

Devils are young men wearing very colorful costumes covered with mirrors, with a mask hiding their face. Women dancing with a devil will often hold their tail.

First day of Carnival 2010 in Jujuy Capital (Argentina).

During Carnival festivities in the Andes mountains, a local tradition consists in throwing white talk powder, spray foam and confettis to the face of others while drinking and dancing to the music of marching bands.
