Favorite Video of the Week: Ağrıdan tulum


Many thanks to blog commenter Secret for recommending this link of the Kurdish dance agridan tulum (I hope I got that right!) and letting me know the difference between halay (which is a Turkish word) and govend (which is Kurdish). Between youtube comments and online sources, I try my best to get information on the videos I post but I’m not always accurate. My main goal is introducing you all to bits of world dance you might not encounter other places. Cheers!

Besides the amazing dancing, this clip features the musician, Yakup playing this hypnotic music. El Mariachi anyone?
