“We are really excited for the reaction of the public. In Culturaymi, you can appreciate all that you saw on the Pan American Games Opening Ceremony, which was created to spread the Peruvian cultural and creative richness,” he stated.
In an interview with a local media, he reminded that entrance to the activities of the Culturaymi program is totally free and all the people who attend will be able to enjoy workshops, exhibitions, panel discussions, theaters, fashion shows, cajon performances, art workshops for social transformation, concerts, among other activities.

On her part, the Peruvian singer Fabiola de la Cuba congratulated the Lima 2019 organization level, as the Games Opening Ceremony has created a different feeling on the streets. “The feeling on the streets and concerts is now a different one. This has been a gift, a tribute and a demonstration of the strength we have as Peruvians.”
Peru is beating to the rhythm of the music and the dances. It is a marvelous cultural event that makes us all proud and creates a connection with the culture. “The cultural issue in Peru has not been as respected as it is now, and we are thinking about the future as well,” she stated.
