Our brother sent us a video of a dance done in Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa. I believe it is called a Zaouli dance, traditional among the Guro people, and it is supposed to make the village in which it is performed more productive. It was created in the 1950’s, inspired (apparently) by a girl named Djiela Lou Zaouli. I’m not honestly sure how my brother discovered this, or why he sent it to us, but it is very entertaining!
I’ve read that each Guro village has one of these dancers to perform for it, and it’s quite the impressive dance. It would take a lot of strength!
If you have never seen these dancers, I hope you enjoy watching. If you want to see more, you can certainly find more on youtube.
