African Dance

No, this isn’t about Panama either, but look at this! My neighbor shared a video and I went looking for more to try and figure out what this is.

Here is the video she shared. (A slightly longer version)

And another.

This looks like the first video but it is longer and  explains a little bit about the dance and where they are from.

How do they do that?! I’ve never seen anything like it.

    Not new to me, as I lived and worked in West Africa. I had very nice wooden masks from Ivory Coast and Mali, as well as brass Nigerian heads. I sold them when we lived in the Caribbean.

  4. I’ve seen that first video before – Facebook perhaps). Mesmerizing is a good word to describe this. Something disturbing about the audience sitting around the second dancer – no reactions at all, they’re just sitting there. (Proberbly mesmerized, every single one of them?)

  6. Crazy! I have never seen anything like it either. It kind of reminds me of bouncing string puppets. Their upper bodies remain stationary. How long do you think it takes them to perfect that dance?
