Emberá Ella Puru (III)

Posted by Alfredo J. Martiz J. (Panama City, Panama) on 29 December 2009 in Lifestyle & Culture.

"Flutes, drums, turtle shells and other percussion instruments guide the movement of dancers. People perform a variety of dances, most involving women only and some in which women and men dance together. Most are simple and easy to identify as they draw their inspiration from the movements of animals. Dances are performed during social gatherings, ceremonies and to welcome visitors in the village."
