Famadihana Dancing With the Dead
Transcript of Famadihana Dancing With the Dead
Dancing With the Dead
The Famadihana is a traditional festival which is celebrated in both urban and rural areas of the country especially in Madagascar; it is more popular among the tribal communities. It is a funerary tradition, known as the turning of the bones, people bring forth the bodies of their ancestors from the family crypts and rewrap them in fresh cloth, then dance with the corpses around the tomb to live music.
In Madagascar this became a regular ritual usually once every seven years, and the custom brings together extended families in celebrations of kinship.
The bizarre ritual of throwing newborn babies off a temple 50ft high and catching them in a cloth has been celebrated in India since last 500 years.

The Burning Man event and its affiliated communities are guided by ten principles that are meant to evoke the cultural ethos that has emerged from the event. They were originally written by Larry Harvey in 2004 as guidelines for regional organizing, then later became a universal criterion of the general culture of the multifaceted movement.
