Eskista

Ethiopian dancing is spectacular! The dancing style, known as ‘eskista’, involves a lot of vigorous head jerking and shoulder bopping. This video has some good examples, and is also a typical Ethiopian music video – one singer walking around the countryside, with a number of dancers randomly strutting their stuff, cutting away to local landmarks, in this case the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela. Don’t try any of these moves at home!

    I won’t. And I thought the Sha’bham lesson last Tuesday was hard work!
