Mali Dance

The landlocked West African country of Mali is mostly desert or semidesert. Over 13 million people live there.

The performers in this video combine different drums and human voices in a traditional song. Dance is often a form of expression and can convey emotions and happiness. Dance is often performed to mark a celebration, a milestone or a tradition.

The duet that is dancing is wearing traditional clothes, made for comfort and coolness since the climate in Mali is very warm and dry.
