Today is Palm Sunday, the official start of Semana Santa in Sevilla, and I was reminded of this video I posted on the Azahar Sevilla blog three years ago. I’d taken it not knowing that it was going to be my last Easter Holy Week in my old house, that it would be the last time I heard this beautiful march played below my bedroom balconies at 1 in the morning as the Santa Cruz procession made its way back home.

I’ll tell you right now that it’s not very good quality, but you can catch a bit of the tune, which I finally found out (after putting this on YouTube) that it’s called La Madrugá by Abel Moreno.

And now I prepare for a week of madness. I have a crazy amount of tapas tours and I’m still not over the cold-flu thing that caused me to lose my voice for the first time in my life. What are you doing this week?
