Kazbeguri

 

YouTube video uploaded by user pitsunda

Kazbeguri takes us to the Northern Mountains of Georgia, Kazbeki,
a region marked with a diverse culture and traditions.
The relatively cold and rough atmosphere of the mountains
is shown through the vigor and the strictness of the movements.
This dance is performed by only men
and portrays the toughness and endurance of the mountain people.

Kazbeguri Rehearsal
