I really like your blog. The dance you refer to is a convite. There's nothing religious about it (though is is performed during the fiestas patronales), ergo the weird pop-culture costumes. a convite is more culturally related to Samba schools than the Baile de la Conquista. I love them. I remember almost swooning when I saw Donald Duck dancing with Daisy and Osama bin Laden dancing with the Devil to the marimba in a crowded street in the highlands. It just doesn't get better than that.
