  Brazilian dancers and musicians

On a July 21st, one may hear La Braban?onne, some military procession. Some jazz band in Parc Royal where they have a rotonde sheltering them while playing and us, public, plastic chairs and benches where to sit. Or some pop-rock groups that would play "Sultans of swing" under another tent in the same park. At least, it used to be like that in Brussels, around Palais Royal.

In Ghent, it's different. We saw a procession but it was not the usual march past. It was a procession with Latino music band, dancing, playing percussion...

In much less covered outfit than our army people and policemen on a July 21st... Shake it!
