    Impressive ethnic/religious dances

    I had this idea after watching this mighty impressive dance from panjshir:




    Another form of communal dancing that left an impression on me, is that of local sufis in chechenya(called dhikr, which is a form of alternative prayer within islam, a form of bodily prayer).


    Contrast it to the ghaderi sufi community kordestan, iran, which leaves it's own impressions:

    Qarsak is more than the video you posted. Its clapping of hands and singing along. The video below has one typical Qarsak style.

    I was initially interested at how unusually martial it is(I've never seen a dance involving firing guns before). I'm not familiar with Afghan regional cultures. So by all means elaborate, I'm interested in how kandhari music would differ from tajiki qarsak music. I have an interest in all peoples cultural/spiritual expressions. They reflect on the uniquely different milieus and sentiments of all the worlds populations.

    The singer lives in Sydney! and I heard rumors that the song was filmed there and that some women in the video were of SA in origin. I think they are wearing Indian Salwaar kameez.
    On a side note I remembered Valy's Panjshir berawem. So the video was shot somewhere in Europe likely Germany and people couldn't believe how beautiful the backdrop was Its even more beautiful.

    Rukha is in some kind of hiding, I guess.

    There aren't much articles on ethno/regional-music scene of Afghanistan. You will have to do extensive research or talk to more Afghans who will tell you more of they know ofc.

    The Maori Haka.

    Arbogan-this is a fun idea for a thread, thanks\

    I was very surprised by the sound in the first video you posted as it sounds very much like the Irish tin flute-I tried to find a good example of it being played to some traditional Irish dance but had no luck
    in looking for the above clip, I did run into a few others that I thought some might like

    the Highland sword dance-the sword and scabbord are crossed and the dancer has to travel to each 'quarter' formed
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2kcRvvbrxA

    The east Coast of Canada is well known for having a heavy Celtic British Isles heritage and came up with their own unique brand of Canadian Celtic song and dance...the lady playing is a well known and big artist...the dancers are obviously amateurs and while do a decent job, don't show the real liveliness you get when folks would have a party like this in their house every other day
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CKccXHUAKKI



    finally, this is a shortened clip of a very well known modern Irish dance number that does give you a good feel for Celtic music and dance

    Zahra-I enjoyed the Haka you included, and while I'm not a big soccer fan, I know the New Zealand elite 'All blacks' team has often won their match before the first minute of play by intimidating the team they are playing against by doing a fierce version of it
