Sogeri SingSing


Technically, not a photo, but...

Last weekend I joined a group trip to Sogeri for a SingSing - a collection of native dancers and singers performing traditional ceremonial dances. Unfortunately, the bigwigs arrived really, really late, so we didn't get to see the actual event, as we had to get certain members of the party back to town to make a flight.

Another member of the party and I, however, trotted off to join the rehearsals and had a marvelous time meeting folks, taking photos of their gorgeous costumes, and even some video of them practising.

In this group from the East Islands, we were waiting patiently for folks to finish their preparations to see what happened, and Granma obviously decided we had waited long enough. Watch how she bullies the girls into dancing for the "dimdims" (white people).
