Dundun dance

Postby korman » Sun Feb 26, 2017 7:29 pm

What do you think about dunun dance in general - a passing fad or legitimate artform?

This video has been making rounds in my country's Facebook community
https://www.facebook.com/709537795762855/videos/776677825715518/
(sorry, there does not seem to be a way of embedding facebook vids in forum posts)
This particular one is from a training workshop, and is more similar to a fitness course than a perfomance. But even when done by professional troupes I still get the feeling that this combination is limiting both to rhythmical possibilities and to choreography. Like in this clip

I don't really have an opinion on the topic so much. I never found it so alluring to see the dancers drum but i never seen it live.

I guess with an hour or more performance it adds another element into the music and may have a powerful sound if put together well.

If it is the next Zumba at least it is better than Zumba.
