Playing for Elegua

Playing for Elegua

After their cake, the children went into the prenda, brought out the drums, and began playing for Elegua. These children have been drumming since they were about 3 or 4 years old (see the “Teaching the Children” photo gallery), and they never miss an occasion to practice or play, whether it’s for a ceremony in front of the prenda, the initiation of a new priest, a matanzas (throughout which the drums are usually played), or a tambor.
