The Diablada puneña is an integral part of Peruvian Andean-theatrical repertoire. It began during the Spanish colonization to teach the local natives the precepts of Christian faith and history of the Spanish Empire. In the Puno Department, in southeastern Peru, the diablada led to a reform in the thinking of the missionaries of the time, with symbols of angels and demons or devils. According to Diego Gonzalez Holguin, author of Arte de la Lengua Aymará y Vocabulario General del Perú the performances owes itself to the work of the Jesuit missionaries in the town of Juli in Puno, using forms of native song and dance whilst providing a unique representation of the seven deadly sins and the triumph of the angels over demons.
