What is Maculele?

Maculele is a folkloric dance performed dressed in a dried hay skirt  to the rhythms of the congo drum. The leader sings and dancers in a circle respond by singing the chorus of the songs. Each dancer strikes a pair wooden sticks to each other, although originally performed with knives or machetes.Through expressive and athletic movements the audience will get a sense of a“mock stick combat”.
