Music of the Zocálo

November 14, 2008

When we arrived in Oaxaca in March of 2008, we found the Zocálo a “bird-hive” of activity.  It was really nice to see the fountains working, something the birds really seemed to enjoy.

Of course the Zocálo was “colored” by a multitude of “balloon” vendors.  We have always been amazed at the very long balloons which do not seem to be marketed in the USA.  It is also fascinating to see people “shoot” the long balloons into the air, when one knows the proper technique to do so.

But what was particularly pleasant in the Zocálo was the “sound of music” as provided by an orchestra piece featuring a player of a saxophone.  You can see him in the next photo.

 Now, if you would like to hear him play, go to the following YouTube video.
