Scenic Sunday. Australian Aboriginal Community


Here's an Aboriginal leanto and musical instrument Didgeridoo.

They danced and sang for us, and taught us a song cum dance which I intend to take back to New Zealand and teach my students.

I am not sure if I got the word Sasa correctly. May be Titania can tell me as I can't find it on the internet.

Sasa to the right,
Sasa to the left,
Sasa to the side,
Sasa to the front,
Sasa to the top.
Sasa! Sasa!

Your hands do the action and go faster and faster. You can sit or stand. If standing, you sasa your hips as well.

But you live in New Zealand! I guess you travelled to Australia?

These photos are wonderful to look at as I may never get to Australia. Thanks, Ann!
