Steel band

While waiting for the next band on the stage, VDP took a few steps down Satory street where there was a steel band playing colourful and happy and full of rythm music!

En attendant le prochain groupe sur la scène, VDP a fait quelques pas rue de Satory où un steel band jouait sa musique colorée, joyeuse et rythmée !
As you can see, Satory street was packed! The restaurants on the pavement were full too!

Comme vous pouvez le voir, il y avait foule rue de Satory, les terrasses des restos étaient prises d'assaut !

The view of the street's remarkable.

I remember hearing some of those drums played here. It gets quite loud!

As I recall steel band music comes from the Caribbean islands...such as Bahama. We had a number of them in south Florida. Funny seeing them in France. I can certainly understand the crowds...this would be a super event to attend!

They not only sound wonderful, but it is fun to watch how the music is produced.

Randy said...

I'll bet they were fun to watch.

I didn't realize that this was national. Somehow I thought it was only in Paris. We have no national festival, other than maybe the Super Bowl, and I don't participate in that.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Wow, looks like a great time (but I'm not fond of crowds). The steel drums make me want to visit the islands.

VP said...
