Mum & I should have taken up drumming ages ago (sans the animal skins/parts). I f*ckin’ love these women:
And of course the ‘China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe’ who pulled off this magnificent achievement, anybody would have to work very hard to do that. I’m glad they wore Indian gharara trousers, used the mudras, chakra colours and most importantly showed Buddha is female, many Goddesses in fact 🙂 . Different videos of the Thousand Arm Dance from this troupe cite Buddha, Guan/Kwan/Quan Yin she who cares for everybody to the last blade of grass, and various boddhisattvas but it’s still Hinduism taken to China, later streamlined and masculanized.
