Slide 1: 

November is of special significance to the zuliano, people since during the same, celebrations are performed in honour of the (zuliano guajirita equivalent) Chinita or Chiquinquirá Virgin. It is for this reason that these days the bagpipes sounds with special frenzy and joy in the Zulia. Of the many festivals in honour to the Virgin, perhaps the most impressive is the so-called dawn Piper, in which the Maracaibo people brings together at dawn of day 18 in the square of the Basilica, to sing the Chinita the Mañanitas and happy birthday.
