1,000 Drums to beat in unison

The sixth edition of “Mil Tambores Guadalajara” will shake the fertile soil of archeological site Guachimontones, Saturday and Sunday, June 23-24.

More than simply a divertissement, “One thousand drums” is a cultural, creative and spiritual movement, one which draws hundreds of people from around the world.  Various activities, rituals and ceremonies will take place, including ones pertaining to chocolate, fire, temezcales (a type of sweat lodge) and meditation.

The ruins are some 2,000 years old and were inhabited by an ancient civilization referred to as the Tradición Teuchitlán. The dominant feature of the site is a circular stepped pyramid.

Guachimontones is located in the municipality of Teuchitlán, Jalisco, one hour west of Guadalajara.
