Also featured are tribal dances from the African nations to the beat of African Djembe drums. Caribbean Salsa and Samba-infused dance are performed to the rhythms of Carribian Steel Drums adding spice to the performance. The mysterious east is brought to life through Indian 'Katakali' dances performed to the beat of the 'Chanda' while Australia's rich musical heritage is reflected in Aboriginal dances performed to the haunting sounds of the Didgeridoo. Traditional Up-Country and Low-Country dances to the beat of the 'Thammattama' and 'Dhawla' are presented as part of the CHOGM 2013 host-nation's performing arts heritage.
