TONGA DANCERS


TONGA TRADITIONAL DANCERS PERFORMING TRIBAL DANCES DURING PRESIDENT MWANAWASA'S FUNERAL AT LIVINGSTONE AIRPORT.
IT IS CULTURAL FOR THE TONGA TO DANCE AND SING LIKE THIS EVEN AT A FUNERAL. IT IS PART FO THEIR CULTURE.
THEY DANCE WITH LONG SPEARS IN THEIR HANDS

Yes its ILA and Tonga. I was hurriedly uploading right on site using my GPRS connection while in Livingstone.
I apologise for the mix.

Thank you for the correction.

Best regards

Look at the head traditional dancer with trainers on, not even wild cat can leap that high in the air for a dead president!
