Saman Dance @ Multicultural Center Fiesta
An annual event in our previous neighborhood: 다문화축제 (Multicultural Festival). This is our 2nd time participating in the event. Being foreigners in Imundong where lots of foreigners reside, we feel obliged to 'get in touch' and know where we live.
So, we end up associating ourselves in Pureun Multicultural Center where lots of activities to cater the needs of those both Korean and foreign nationals to mingle and understand each other's cultures.
Indonesian team teamed up with our Korean counterparts performed Saman Dance (a traditional dance originated from Aceh, Sumatra). It took my wife and Ulfa..let's see..hardly a month to teach other Korean friends to be able to perform the energetic and no-mistake-or-we-are-doomed-:-D)-kind-of-dance.
It was a relief that we did excel beyond our expectation...
and 'Encore! 'Encore!' exclamation sort of acknowledged our efforts to put in on the show.
