Cartagena 3: Afro-Colombian Dancers

Happened upon an amazing dance performance in one of the plazas here. I tried to upload a short video but it is taking too long with my slow hotel internet connection so I will attempt that later. This dancing was amazing and clearly influences the "crunk" dancing style among African Americans.










The music makers...










In the picture below they have incorporated a fishermen's theme to the story.










Fast, physical and furious, I felt like I was getting a workout just watching.
