We were very happy for being invited to share the space with Brazil group. Thanks to Mosaic Festival organization, Brazil crew and visitors for the good vibes, dance and tribal music! 🙂
Quipus or knot-record was a method used by the Incas and other ancient Andean cultures to keep records and communicate information (keeping count of numbers of days, events, or objects.) More information: Quipus Wikipedia.
