Photographer's Note

I have a story for this picture. I took several pictures of Djelma el Fna artists but few of them satisfied me. And I have a reason for this. Picturing faces or actions performed by the artists were great but they seem inadequate for one main reason: they did not put music at the centre of the photo. Music was there but the surrounding elements did not express clearly this concept. I took this picture at the very end of my trip. I pictured what I think was the best band playing in Djelma el Fna that night. one violin and three tamburins. Music was at the centre. The baricentre of that world. Surrounding elements are the people, the noise, the smoke coming from the food stalls located at the centre of the square. I do not know whether you agree with me but when I took this picture I said "I got it!!"
