Ethiopia: Traditional Dance - Oromo

Friday - dance time!

Last Friday, we had dance from the Gurage. Today, it's traditional dance from another ethnic group in Ethiopia, the Oromo.

Girls see boys. Boys see girls. All farm work ceases. Dance ensues!

Men with long sticks and big swords invite women to dance with them!

This style of Oromo dance is kind of violent. I don't know what it's about; I wish I did.
