The “Llamero” derives its name from the llama, camelid of the Andes, whose keeper was called the “llamero”. The origin of this dance comes from the “Allenqaqac”, who were the first domesticators of the llama. They were groups of men and women who would meet after a ceremony and dance around their animals as a symbol of triumph. “Carhua Huyo” is a circle of men and women formed to herd together and tame llamas.

This says that the llamerada is a countryside dance that is presented in mainly religious community festivals. Today the llamero is danced as the llamerada. The dancers dress in costumes with llama wool adornments. Traditionally it was dancers whistled as when they herded together their llamas. Today we can see that they use masks with lips pursed as if to whistle. They also use a “montera” (an umbrella like apparatus adorned with wool and coloured pearls)
