Show trip route
Once we found the performance area, which we had to force our way through an unrelenting crowd to reach, we were packed into a very small section where two drummers played out a thumping rhythm. They pounded out their beat for two and a half hours being joined by a trumpet player in one section and a group of head swinging dancers for the concluding hour. The highlight for me was the trumpet player. I have no idea how these guys managed to pound our their drum beats for such a long time without any rest.
For me it was tiring enough sitting cross legged on a tiny patch of floor for the duration of the show. But this is a Lahore must and is a well known part of the backpacking circuit in Pakistan.
