The Drums Festival Beat …

Team from the Archipelago..

Archipelago Drum festival already finished in 14th of February. I manage to see the last show. Here we are already accustomed to the Malay Archipelago drums from Indonesia-Brunei-Singapore as the instrument, dance, costume similar to what we have in Malaysia. The Philippines traditional dance also kinda similar to Sabah State of Malaysia tribal dance Kadazan. The Festival had to finished up early because of the heavy rain. I manage to capture Uzbekistan Traditional dance in a short Video. Interesting dance with a man in the middle playing a traditional percussion instrument.

Another thematic dance showing a fisherman and a farmer..
