the men dance from house to house driving away the evil spirits. the guitar and fiddle are traditional Huasteca region music... I came upon this remote village last year and with the permission of the elder was able to film this dance. Some men are dressed up as women.
My project is to document the indigenous textiles of Mexico. To do this I travel to remote indigenous villages to photo and film the traditional textiles and festivals over 650 are now documented. There are over 60 different languages spoken in Mexico and I try to document all that I can reach. My home base is Mexico City. This films are part of the documentation project which is presented as a web museum at www.mexicantextiles.com . The indigenous cultures of Mexico will be brought to you in short but interesting video clips and on my blib.tv blog. Thanks for you interest. bob Freund
