September 30th is the Feast Day of San Geronimo (Saint Jerome), the patron saint of the church at Taos Pueblo, tucked into the Sangre de Cristo (Blood of Christ) Mountains of Northern New Mexico, where the Colonial Spanish influence is felt around every corner.

There are thousands of visitors, booths selling pottery, jewelry, food vendors and more, and all through the pueblo people are celebrating the harvest.

There are also the clowns who shout from the rooftops and send children scattering because they dunk those who have misbehaved into the river that runs through the village.

I took Pitx’s delightful “Summer Dance,” paired it with the quintessential Native American flute song by kerri, then wove it together with a Kahon, men shouting and birds singing to give a little glimpse into the Feast of San G.

PS I recorded myself imitating the shout of the clown and lowered it to sound more manly.
