Playing the Cymbals


Anand invited me to a fancy-fair where I could finally see his mates playing in their brass band.

Madurai knows several brass bands all in the English Style mostly used for such evenments, although personally I prefer the traditional drumbands, quite noisy but sensational when you see 30 men driving up a changing ritme.

It was already late when I arrived and I had to rely on the artificial light for this less perfect shot but maybe it still pleases and inspires you.

Hi, Henk
Superb, the reflections of his face in the cymbals are like duplicating their resonance. Pretty unique image in a gallery of unique moments. Bravo, my friend! One for the ages.
