Traditional 2 (The "Rifles dance" or "L'BAROUD")

In the following videos you'll be introduced to a special dance called "L'BAROUD" or powder (for rifles). It's a traditional dance presented to celebrate national & religious holidays, the dancers usually stand in circles holding their rifles fully loaded of powder singing special songs. After a sign from the "man in charge" or the maestro who usually stands in the middle of the circle; the dancers fire their rifles causing a cloud of smoke & a roaring sound which would make all the crowds jump suddenly after hearing the abrupt sound. The costumes are uniquely chosen for this "occasion" & are usually kept only for this dance and not to be changed...
