Semana Santa Sevilla
Project info

I am doing anthropology fieldwork in Seville looking at the marching bands accompanying the processions of local "hermandades" ("fraternities") inspired by the story of Jesus of Nazareth and his cruxifixction. Especially during the yearly events known as "Holy Week" for Catholics, the fraternities parade with marching bands. The parade groups of the fraternities are called "Cofradías" and followed by avid onlookers through the streets of Seville.
