Aboriginal Sicily



I am spending a few days in Catania, the eastern city of Sicilia. It is a charming and interesting city. Very close to my B&B there is the old castle of this ancient city. Last night they started an international folk music festival, so I wandered over to see what is was like. I immediately saw three aboriginal Australian people in the crowd and made my way over to them to say hello.

A few minutes later this elder stepped up and played this instrument. It was quite the blessing, quite the surprise. Later I spent about an hour talking to his sister. I will have more on this later. Video was recorded with a Nokia E-71 mobile phone.
