«Zanzibar Dance, Trance and Devotion»is an anthology of 26 dances filmed by Tamalyn Dallal in Zanzibar (Tanzania). These include women rights of passage, harvest dances, trance practices, and sufi based practices.
The Kariako State Dance Co. was formed in the 1970's with guidance from the Ballet Africans from Guinea. The troupe performs several choreographed dances throughout the film and they brought her to remote villages to film dances in their traditional context with the local people.
«Zanzibar Dance, Trance and Devotion» is a rare opportunity to see dance in a place so far away, some of which has a lot in common with New Orleans (umbrella dance, dancing to a brass band, and invoking spirits.
