Selim Ozcan: Village Dance
Omo Valley, Ethiopia
This documentary brings you to a traditional Hamar Tribe party in the Omo Valley. This type of gathering is usually done in the days leading up to a Hamar wedding. The activities during the party consist of a lot of drinking, singing and dancing…much like we do when we get together on the MIramichi. The two choices of drinks are either honey wine or beer made from sorghum grains. Traditionally, the woman dance separately in a group while the men do the same but at times during the dancing, the men will jump towards a woman to invite them to dance with them.
