On this episode of Philimena.com I take you inside the Liberian cultural dance scene! “Music and dance are an integral part of village life in Liberia. The people dance and sing for the departed souls of the dead, at celebrations and weddings, on behalf of important visitors, and just for fun. Liberian dances are often noted for the energy and passion displayed by the dancers. As with most African dance forms, Liberian dances often reference not just the physical, but the spiritual as well. These dances are a way to preserve and transmit important stories and traditions.” (worldartwest.org)
I had an amazing time with this extraordinary group who taught me some moves and made me feel so welcome (even with my lack of rhythm LOL) If you LIKE this video make sure to LIKE, COMMENT, & SUBSCRIBE!
