BENAVENTE LEIVA, Javiera. Caporales Dance in the Andean Geocultural Area: Reflection from Heritage. Rev Cien Cult [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.47, pp.259-281. ISSN 2077-3323.

This paper reflects on the cross-border practice of the Bolivian folkloric dance of caporales, and its implications in statal discourses and in those which emerge from the different communities that practice this dance and its music. Here we review the tensions between the patrimonialist perspective from the State, which conceives this kind of cultural practice as national property, and the transnational heritage perspective, which allows us to put attention to the cultural exchange between people across the national borders.

Keywords : caporales dance; transnational heritage; intangible heritage.
