Aklavik’s drummers and dancers: Passing along the traditions

 

 

 

 

Aklavik’s drummers and dancers practice in the community, and their presence means there is an event of significance happening.

It’s very nice to see the younger people (see for example the young girls here, bottom right) looking at older members and learning the moves.

Songs of the drummers follow irregular rhythms, such as…

BEAT-BEAT-BEAT-BEAT (pause) BEAT-BEAT (pause, pause) BEAT (pause) BEAT BEAT (pause) BEAT.
