KHOTON FOLK DANCES

Description: Zinametr Ülemj, laureate of international folklore festivals and state awards, demonstrates Khoton folk dances. The ikel (two stringed fiddle) accompaniment, performed by Zinametr, was recorded separately and later added to the video. The names of two dances can be approximately translated as ''The yound goldfinch'' and ''Her name is Juurai'', as their names in original language have different variants of spelling (Seden zalu/Seten zalu; Juurai gelden/Juurai geldenee), which in turn give them different meanings.
