Freternindad Folklorica y Cultural Caporales Universitarios de San Simon


The Fraternidad Folklorica Cultural Caporales Universitarios San Simon ("Caporales San Simon") was founded in Cochabamba, Bolivia on November 22, 1978 by a group of residents from Oruro, Bolivia, alumni of the "Universidad Mayor de San Simon", for the purpose of retaining and growing its ancient customs. This group of youths decided to create a dance group of Caporales as a means to demonstrate their devotion to the Virgin Mary of the Socavon as well as to be able to participate in the Carnival in Oruro.

For this reason, the "Universidad Mayor de San Simon" gives them support as it considers them a positive representation of Bolivian folklore.
