I started the day out with some traditional Cambodian dance rituals that these people perform to thank their God for the bounty given to them….
After this, I made it to the south stage to catch the Jewish Gypsy perform. I didn’t even know there were Jewish Gypsies.
After this ended, an Inter-tribal native american pow wow was just getting under way. It first started by having one of the tribal leaders perform a sacred ceremony blessing the ground ( very spiritual), then the performance got under way..
and finally, I saw a Japanese Tyko drum circle. Unfortunately, my memory card was full about 30 seconds into this, but you get a good feel of the intensity of this just from the short clip I did get.
The Living Traditions Festival is an annual event in downtown SLC, and I hope to make it my own tradition in the years to come.
