Hello 👋🏽 my people!! Zaouli is a traditional dance of the Guro people (who speak the Guro language) of central Ivory Coast.
Each Guro village has a local Zaouli dancer (always male), performing during funerals and celebrations.
The dance is believed to increase the productivity of a village that it is performed in, and is seen as tool of unity for the Guro community, and by extension the whole country.
The spiritual celebration, is to envoke a spirit...For its wisdom and good will.
The goal is to make it seem like the spirit is floating (psst...STARE at the mask and u will see it).
Enjoy. ☺️ Song:
