    When the young attendant to Tugbezuku shrine became immoral and sexually took the virgin betrothed to the gods of purity, little did he know that the wrath of Tugbezuku cannot be merely pardon with a sacrifice.
    It has always been said in our history that, one cannot crime against the gods and go scot-free so, the elders must dance naked, as the villagers employ the Pardon Ritual Dance to hold the anger of the gods. But this comes too late. Death, dance them into the world of silence.

    African Traditional & Contemporary Dance. Other Ghanaian dance repertoires abounds.

  3. Dear,
    Doegar Phunsum is an entertainment academy based in Thimphu, Bhutan.
    After the provision of training in the performing of cultural arts, the trainees are employed in the academy as part of the cultural entertainment troupe. In view of the fact that the performers have had very exposure and opportunity to share and learn from cultural exchanges with other countries, While such programs would go a long way towards promoting the country’s unique culture internationally and building awareness, understanding and good-will, it would also help the academy to enhance its skills and learn from other countries.
    The academy’s performances include traditional Bhutanese songs and dances depicting Buddhist allegories (Mask Dance). In this regard, I would like to know more of your foundation and the procedural for inviting cultural groups from outside for traditional mask and folk dances of Bhutan for upcoming Events.
    Therefore, I on the behalf of the Deogar Phunsum, Thimphu, Bhutan and on my behalf I would like to request sir/Madam that is there any chance to participate my group to take part in your Festival
    We are looking forward at hearing from you soon.
