A parade isn’t a parade without music. The great Kandy Perahera starts with the whip crackers demanding attention and then all – dignitaries, dancers, and the elephants* – process to the irresistible rhythms of pipe and drum.
* I’ve seen a couple of show-off elephants actually dancing as they process – wowing the crowds as only a brightly lit mountain can!
I was so glad to see Jake and his Sunday Post challenges back. it’s taken too long to participate, but this week’s With Musical Instrument was un-missable – even if it’s taken most of the week to decide which shots to include.
