LOS ANGELES: Oaxacan marching band

I attended the inauguration of the L.A. office of FIOB — Frente Indigena de Organizaciones Binacionales (Indigenous Front of Bi-national Organizations), which works to help Indians, mostly from Oaxaca, here in the U.S. and back home.

Before the inauguration, a brass band set off marching playing around the block. Very cool.

Click above for a video of a little of that, then let me know what you think.

  1. SAM, ES UNA DELICIA PALPAR LA SENSIBILIDAD EN TUS TEXTOS, SENCILLOS E INTERESANTES; ANOTAME COMO FAN DE TU BLOG. MIRA, NO LO VAS A CREER: HASTA ENTIENDO EL INGLES CASI AL 100%!

    GRACIAS POR SER HUMANO Y PREOCUPARTE POR TANTOS ASUNTOS RELACIONADOS CON LA AMERICA LATINA, MIGRACIÓN, PROBLEMAS Y SOBRE TIDO POR TU SEGUNDA PATRIA. UN ABRAZO AMIGO.

  2. Love how it looks totally incongruous in the LA setting but also sounds right at home. Nice, Sam.

      Hey thanks Keith….went to the inauguration just to see what I could see and suddenly the band began marching around the block. The benefits of having a camera with video capability.
