Tobarra's Easter: Passion for the drum

by Vizcaino Perez March. 27, 2016 1691 views

The Good Friday is probably the most notable day in the year in Tobarra. Thousands of persons meet in a nearby hill called the Calvary with the dull rumor of the drums at background. Up there the Christ blesses the four cardinal points with its articulated arm in the only time of silence. Because the indisputable figure is the drum. During 104 hours, from wednesday to Easter Sunday, Tobarra's streets resound with the roll of hundreds, thousands of them, uninterruptedly. Definitively, the drum is in the DNA of the local people.
