Saya refers to a folkloric dance of African origin from the Yungas region of Bolivia performed by an Afro-Bolivian community.
The colors of Saya Productions, red, yellow and green, are those of the Bolivian flag, the home country of the mother of Alexandre Brisson, founder of the company.
These colors also symbolize the flag of Guinea which highlights the origin of one of the musicians of Saya Productions.
