United by our traditions across the water

Traditional dancing is massive in Guatemala and other countries in Central America such El Salvador where the above documentary clip is from (El Salvador,”La Huella Prehispánica”, Documental). The more I discover about folkloric or traditional dancing, the more you see the links with our own traditions and cultures that have become more and more submerged.

For example, here’s a clip of Morris dancing from my own backyard in Hackney, London, showing a fascinating resemblance to the dancing in El Salvador. Thanks to cuzcatleco76 for the wealth of video on El Salvador.
