Local Drummers

They come around every year, the donkey carries the gifts everyone gives them for singing and drumming. It's nice, I have never seen anything like it before.

    what a handsome donkey!

    We have similar drummers in the UAE. Some families invite drummers prior to a wedding party. They drum and sing old songs outside of the bride's or groom's house. I love this tradition. This loud noise creates a festive atmosphere of excitement.

  2. Walaikum Essalam Alice, LOL! I just love donkeys, they crack me up. We also have those drummers who come for weddings and engagement parties. It sure does create a festive atmosphere! I love these parts of this culture, truly I feel blessed to have traveled here!
