Ethiopia: Traditional Dance - Amhara

Friday - dance time!

Over a year ago, not too long after I'd returned from my solo trip to Ethiopia, I had a Friday dance series showcasing the traditional dances of Ethiopian ethnic groups.  

There was dance from the Oromo, and before that, dance from the Gurage.

In my "draft post" closet, I've had this post gathering dust, til now.

Today, traditional dance from another Ethiopian ethnic group, the Amhara.

In addition to the dancing in the above video, I enjoy the periodic appearances by a cow or a guy on a horse.  

When resurrecting this post, I had fun looking at the Oromo and Gurage dance videos again. I love all Ethiopian dance, but I think the Gurage's is my favorite.
