Hosay - Night of Flags

This is the first night of the Hosay precessions on the streets of St. James, Trinidad and Tobago. There are three families who celebrate the Day of Muharram, Night of Flags. A procession that began at 11pm on the quiet streets and echoed the rhythms of the Tassa drummers surrounded by a small but attentive audience.

The clip on youtube shows a synopsis of the evening from the three processions. Note the energy and compassion from the drummers.
