Marita Ortiz, SoulMarita has been performing South American cultural dances in differents events in the Wellington Region from 2004. Her focus is culture, performing arts and well-being. She is orginally from Peru and loves to promote the beauty of her cultural inheritance. Besides performing, she has been running cultural dance workshops and organising community events to promote Peru in different areas. In the past November she co-organised the fans’ football game “Flying Kiwis” Vs “Inka Power” to welcome Peru to New Zealand and celebrate culture and friendship between both countries. She loves to sing Latin American music and especially Peru “criolla” music, presenting her recital “Noche de Cajon” in the city with just a capella voice and Peruvian cajon. She enjoys also instructing Pilates and Yoga.  As group leader of “The Amazons” and “Sabor Peruano”, she wants to continue the journey of showing to Wellington either vibrant and spicy dances from the Peruvian and Brasilian Amazon or flavoured and vibrant Afro-Peruvian rhythms. This will be a little magical colorful tour around the Coast, the Andes and the Selva.
