Tamboradas drum-playing rituals are loud, group rituals based on the simultaneous, intense and continuous beating of thousands of drums, played uninterruptedly for days and nights in the public spaces of towns and villages. The tamboradas are part of the celebrations for Catholic Holy Week, and have a special significance according to different places, days and times. Everywhere, they create a captivating landscape of sound and identity in an atmosphere charged with an intense feeling of collective communion and mutual respect.
