Traditional Dancing in Zimbabwe

I have never been to Zimbabwe and it looks the current political, economic, and social crises there will prevent me from doing so for a long time, but I have seen traditional Zimbabwe dancing in the comfort of my own home (or wherever I take my computer).  Thanks to YouTube, I have access to 65,000 “African dance” videos.  So far, this one is my favorite.

I think this video gives the feeling that you’re actually there.  The traditional buildings in the background reinforce that impression.  Also, the focus is less on strenuous acrobatics and more on the chanting and group movements.  Check out the videos and see which one you like best.
