Farandole

Leave a comment

farandoleToday was the last day of Feria des Vendanges, or the harvest festival. After seeing two corridas yesterday (Léa Vicens, Paco Ojeda and the magnificent Diego Ventura  in the morning and a “mano à mano” by El Juli and the triumphant José Mari Manzanares in the evening), today I just strolled around the town.

First I went to see another abrivado, but as I’ve posted pictures of it twice, I’ll pass it this time. After that there was a folklore parade. The local dance and music is called farandole, and I think it’s really beautiful and often also very humoristic! If you have a chance, do go and see it. The music, the wear… everything is so pretty.
