Entertainment (Part 3)
Cape Verde Evening: Traditional Dances
The second performance was the Cape Verde evening. Two different groups performed taking turns. The group on this page consisted of two couples performing traditional Capeverdean dances.
An exuberant dance begins.
This could be almost rock ‘n’ roll ...
... interspersed with traditional movements.
The final phase of the first dance
Another dance begins: a Mazurka.

The music may be strange for a Mazurka ...
... but the movements should be familiar even to the European audience.
The dance entailed a lot of bottom wiggles.
The audience watches in front of the bar.
Taking the final bow in turns
