    Marvelous image.. I am so very interested in the history and culture of the many diverse people of this planet.. thanks!

  • Hi, Heather. Thanks for the comment and favoriting. This type of dance is only danced by men…even the female roles. It mixes ritualistic moves with pantomime. So the storyline is very easy to follow. What I like most in this type of performance are the costumes… :-) Miguel
