The drum group-they are beyond incredible.The drumming:awesome beyond belief. Has a special energy-a unique sound;sounds like it’s “coming from somewhere”. They are great masters.The dancers are fabulous and they have a truly awesome way of chanting and singing.There will not be a group of individuals even remotely like this for all time; they completely stand out and alone. All the stars aligned with this generation,in this one village,in one place,made up of singular persons.Absolutely unreal.
