Kandy Poya Day Dancers


My visit to Kandy in Sri Lanka coincided with a Poya Day – a full moon day, which is always a public holiday in Sri Lanka and they are used to commemorate important Buddhist events.  This meant that there were hundreds of people singing, dancing, and playing music in the streets, in a procession starting from the Temple of the Sacred Tooth.  These men were doing a traditional dance, accompanied by drummers (in the background).
