e always enjoyed watching parades. Every city fiesta the family and I would always pick out the best spot by the road to watch the fiesta parade convoy; with unique presentations from different high schools and colleges of the city. Float parades and the dashing baton twirlers all eyes feasted with the different crafts and costumes. But what catches our ear is the rhythm of the drums, hearing them just sends dancing bones through everyone who hears them. Parades would never be how they without them, thanks to earth-shaking drum rolls of : african percussion instruments today.
