Friday Night

Lens Culture... Friday Night - photographs and text by David Pace. "...Friday night at Le Cotonnier. The evening calm is shattered by distorted bass blaring through blown speakers. The insistent beat sends a message across the village and into the fields beyond:
There is a ball tonight at Le Cotonnier!
Tonight we will pound our feet on the concrete slab where millet was drying in the midday sun only hours ago. Tonight we will be transported by the ecstatic music from Cote d’Ivoire and Niger. Tonight we will drink warm beer and, as if in a trance, we will forget about yesterday. And dance, dance, dance..." More... Works by David Pace at his personal site.

The site needed a sound track. I wish I could listen to the music from Le Cottonier
