WOMAD Sri Lanka 2005 ::: Sri Lanka's Festival of World of Music and Drums Photos
 
25th September Evening at Galle Face Green : Drummers of Burundi
< PREV       NEXT >
           
The Drummers of Burundi had their own style in everything. The heavy drums made of bare tree trunks, about 3 1/2 feet tall. Their drumming would rocked crowed who filled the Galle Face Green. They were very original, pure tribal. I felt like in middle of a warriors preparing for battle.  Their costume resembled illustrations of ancient Africans i had seen in history books. They were happy and always smiling. They were acrobats, each drummer took a turn to  come to the center drum to entertain the crowed with own style of drumming and performing acrobatic jumps.
