Let Yourself Be Astonished by the Voladores

On top of a tall pole, the group leader beats the drum and plays the flute to invoke the generative elements of life, the cardinal points, as well as the cosmic union of the Sun and the Earth. Then the four voladores jump into the air head-first, a rope tied to their waists, and they descend in circles to ask the gods to bless them with fertility.
