Traditional Dance

Every Monday we were invited to learn traditional dance. We had to pay 500 kwacha to attend, which would go to the boys who taught us. 

First we would watch them dance between the banana leaves, chant out loud, beat the drums and use dumbbells and whistles. Then they would go through step by step and teach us. Once we asked for a drum lesson, so instead of the dance they taught us drums. Firstly, they had to warm up the drums by making a fire so they would produce the correct sounds.
