Maafathi Neshun

The Maldives

Maafathi Neshun

The movements in Maafathi Neshun are similar to Langiri. But the performers are all women, and they wear national dress. This is a group dance in which women dance in two rows of ten. Each performer has a semi circular string which is about three feet long with artificial flowers attached to it. They hold the strings and dance in different style in small rows or groups of two or three displaying different symbols.
