Dance & Music

The resplendent quetzal and the deities and sovereigns based on it—Quetzalcoatl, Kukulkan, Gucomatz, Xochiquetzal, and Kinich Yax K’uk’ Mo, to name a few—have not only inspired visual artists, but have also found representation in song and dance. Here you will find information, images, and video of such music and dances.
