Fiesta de la X

Saturday night there was a big music festival in Parque Batlle in Montevideo. For more than a month, at soccer practice, we'd been watching them construct the main stage. By Thursday, a beer tent had taken over a corner of the court.

I went to the Fiesta for a few hours. (Sorry, no pictures from the event -- cameras were prohibited.) There were rock bands on several stages, electronica on another, folk music, hip hop, etc. My favorite was a candombe drum troupe. The concert lasted all night, but I didn't.

Very interesting info and link on Candombe and Afro-Uruguayans. Very few people know about this subject.
