The Rite Stuff: Nyau Mask dances
The full programme is available for viewing by requesting clip. Some footage may be subject to third party restrictions. Duration 23 minutes and 30 seconds. Hakeem journeys to Malawi to meet with Doctor Ben Smith at the Chewa rock art site. He will be taken to the secret place where the masks and costumes are being prepared for the great dance - a sacred grave yard - the ultimate place for the living and the dead to commune before the ceremony. He will meet people of a Malawian village whose very culture and custom is molded by the Nyau dancers and he will experience the wonder of an event where spirits and the people of the community work together to reconcile issues of both the past and the present mystical ritual, view of clouds from airplane window, Malawi, bullock carts, farmers, village, children, climbing steep hill, Nat Geo backpack, cave, Nyau, flowering bushes in village, forest, headstones, market, fish market, kids eating caterpillars, murals, timelapse clouds in blue sky, men in jungle, secret ceremony, ritual, villagers prepare for dance, women sing and clap, drums, masked men in costume, dance, animal costume, men on stilts, church in Malawi, National Geographic
