ZANZIBAR DANCE, TRANCE, & DEVOTION: AN ANTHOLOGY OF ZANZIBARI DANCES ON FILM
Tamalyn Dallal (Tanzania/USA, 2011) 80 minutes. KiSwahili songs lyrics with English subtitles and English voice-over. Genre: documentary.
A collection of vibrant dance and music of interest to scholars, dancers and others. Dallal documented a group of former clove farmers from the island of Pemba as they showed the rarely seen dances of harvest, rhythmic stick fighting, and others that called forth the spirits. She traveled to villages, filming a tribe of matrilineal women, a village that attributes their good fortune to an 800 year old spiritual practice, and another where they incorporate pantomime with drumming while wearing vintage sunglasses and military uniforms.
