In the central historic district between Zocalo and Palacio de Bellas Artes, on the Francisco I Madero street, there is a very interesting shopping area. This street is off limits for driving, so a lot of people are walking up and down this street. During Christmas and New Year holiday season there were a number of interesting street artists performing on the road for tips.
People were posing with them for photographs.
The mask guy...
Street performing can be hard work, you need some downtime....
And some native artists performing Mayan music
They had very interesting instruments.
And some exotic costumes.
and performed some really nice music. A bit of similarity with some background music used in Western movies.
