Songs and Dances of Nymylans (coastal Koryaks) of Lesnaya

During festivals, Koryaks, as well as other indigenous peoples of Kamchatka, perform traditional songs and dances to express particular familar and group identities. Specific songs and dances enable a ritual dialogue with nature. But also in everyday situations Koryaks amuse themselves with spontaneous imitations of animal sounds and their characteristic movements.

Such particular song and dance traditions of the Nymylans of Lesnaya are thoroughly documented on a recently published DVD. Some clips from that documentary will be shown here. » more
