After my departure from India, I arrived in Sevilla, Spain, to prepare itinerary for Morocco and to, well, just take it easy for a few days. Sevilla is in Andalucia, the most southern part of the country. Because of its proximity to Africa, there are many immigrants from Morocco and West Africa in Sevilla; which creates a very diverse music scene.
One evening, I stumbled upon a small music club, Reggae Vibes, and watched a percussion performance by a group from Sierra Leone. The group, called African Shrine, mostly played djembes – large wooden and calf-skin hand drums. The djembe jam lasted about an hour, and there was also a fire show. All in all, it was very entertaining and a rather unexpected evening!
Below are a bunch of pictures and videos from the performance. The lighting is pretty poor in the videos, but the sound came out well…Enjoy!
