Mexican voladores

An unique mexican ceremonial ritual has been going on twice a day at the plaza O'Higgins trought this weekend. They are the voladores totonacos de Papantla as we saw it dancing yesterday....
The instrument used to set the whole ceremonial rite is a small cane tabor pipe and a small drum that is played by the tamborilero while dancing at the top of a single 25 m tall maintop trunk.
