The Kalasha Dance; The Dance to Please gods (Video)

The Kalasha people of Pakistan are fond of dance; the dance is somehow their religious ritual as well as cultural trait.
They just seek chances of dancing and singing. They have four major festivals in a year: Joshi (May), Uchaw (August), Poh/Pul (September) and Chaumas (December). In all these festival they offer sacrifices, dance and sing songs.

The posted dance was recorded during my field research in Rumbor Valley in August, 2007.
