An Exchange of Cultures: Cumbre Tajin and Glastonbury
The Cumbre Tajin Festival and Glastonbury may work together and establish an excellent alliance!
Mexico and England two countries divided by the Atlantic Ocean are closer than ever thanks to music and culture.
For many years music has joined the world together. Next year the ritual ceremony of the Voladores or known as Papantla Flyers will also be crossing and flying across British skies!
How can this be possible? Well first we have to go back to March 20th, day one of Cumbre Tajín; a fest of music, color and culture that has the most spectacular presentations that honors the Totonacan culture. This event has fascinated the entire world including the producers of Glastonbury.
After four days of presentations, the English production team could not resist the need to approach to Cumbre Tajín committee. The main idea is a cultural exchange between both festivals.
The five days of Glastonbury will be full of Mexican culture. The most colorful traditions of Veracruz will reach England, such as the ritual ceremony of Papantla Flyers, the indigenous acrobatics laboratory and a group of traditional physicians will be present at Worthy Farm.
In return, Cumbre Tajín will have musical support and the experience of the English production! It’s worth mentioning that the last edition of Glastonbury, Mexico made a very special appearance through the event, with an entire cultural stand featuring gastronomy, handcrafts and music from Mexico. The area known as The Common had Mexican presence too. Scenarios were inspired by Aztec, Maya and Toltec figures that were present in every corner.
Talks and meetings between the producers of Glastonbury and the Cumbre Tajín committee continue, press and society are waiting for more news about this fusion of cultures. There’s no doubt about the next editions of these two festivals will be amazing so you better prepare your festival agenda because you can’t miss them.
