DescriptionA good troupe of Boedra dancers - each year a different local group performs - but in general we've decided not to shoot the Boedra. The film associated with this record shows a sequence of different dances one after the other, rather than splitting them up into individual records. This is generally how the Boedra group operates, to fill gaps in the performance schedule or, as here, to begin the days proceedings and as an introduction, leading up to the more sacred dances to follow.
