Weekend Procession in the Lent Season

Lent Season Precession

Yesterday I told you I was going to have a sample of the sorrowful tunes play by the processional musicians that are an integral part of processions.

On the weekends of the Lent season or Cuaresma as it is known in Spanish, La Antigua Guatemala becomes the backdrop for smaller processions which are a preamble for the huge and massive procession of the Holy Week or Semana Santa.

For now you can enjoy a video clip that shows a procession around El Tanque de La Unión and listen to the mournful music. El Tanque de la Unión is the largest laundry public washbasin in La Antigua Guatemala.
