This rather jazzy music with trumpet and drums is played at the Kataragama festival by bands that lead groups of pilgrims across a sacred ganga river and around the site to Hindu, Buddhist and Muslim shrines.
Some pilgrims do the "peacock" dance with peacock feathers attached to a semi-circular wooden structure carried on the shoulders, which is dipped whilst moving.
Others have their backs and cheeks pierced with hooks as a sign of devotion - the whooping you can hear half-way through the recording is the crowd as 3 people have their cheeks pierced with long needles.
