A few days ago I published my favourite photographs that I’d taken over Easter of the beautiful and moving Misteri procession in Trapani, Sicily. But to experience it in full, you need to hear the wonderfully funereal music, and to see the movement too (the ‘annacata’ waddle of the people processing)! So here’s some of my short videos of the Trapani Misteri Procession 2018. They were taken on 30 and 31 March, mostly from the balcony of the Ai Lumi hotel in Corso Vittorio Emanuele.
I’ve also thrown in a couple of videos from the separate Easter Sunday 1 April procession in Trapani. As it celebrates Jesus rising from the dead, it’s got a much more upbeat feel.
The video clips are varying quality – but hey, they were live right?! I do hope that you enjoy some of them. Personally, I think the music, in particular, is awesome!
I’m sorry that I don’t know the names of all the bands etc. to give them credit. If anyone who watches these recognises them, or even themselves in the procession, then please do let me know in the comments, or via my contact page, and I will add labels and credits.
And see my original post from a few days ago if you want to read a little background on the Trapani Misteri Procession, or details of how to get to Trapani.

Finally, here’s a link to a Misteri Procession video that I posted live on Facebook (which hasn’t let me download it to embed it direct here!).
Easter Sunday Procession
And finally finally(!), here’s two video clips of the Easter Sunday procession celebrating Jesus rising from the tomb. I just happened to bump into it on returning to the hotel after being out for the day. Excuse the sound quality on this first video – it was very windy in Trapani on Easter Sunday! Just look at those restaurant awnings flapping about!
Just to say it again, I’m sorry that I don’t know the names of all the bands etc. to give them credit. If anyone who watches these recognises them, or even themselves in the processions, then please do let me know in the comments, or via my contact page, and I will add labels and credits.
