Dead end?

IMAG0017At the end of the tra­di­tional car­ni­val pro­ces­sion, the wag­gons and orches­tras were sup­posed to dis­solve in a nar­row street. But they just didn’t. The Bavar­ian samba band insists on play­ing on, while a trac­tor is blow­ing its foghorns, finally giv­ing way to the dis­torted bass from other loud­speak­ers. Acousti­cally the medieval street works like an inti­mate boom­box for this lovely mess.
