Cowbell carnival cacophony


25 in stock

Prior to Ash Wednesday the village of Tilcajete, near Oaxaca, celebrates carnival with imaginative animal and creature masks in chanting, grunting, colorful processions. Here, a carnival celebrant parades through the dusty village streets with his group of similarly-costumed friends. The cowbells strapped around his waist clang and and jangle as he grunts and dances. Bekki and I traveled to Oaxaca, Mexico, February of 2020 with my sister and brother-in-law who organize cultural trips to Central America and Mexico.
