Hi all friends. I hope you are doing well and staying healthy. Today I posted a picture of the TORTOR dance. TORTOR is one of the traditional dances in Indonesia. That is the dance of the Batak tribe. Indonesia consists of many islands and many tribes, and automatically there are many traditional dances. There are also many traditional foods. When dancing Tortor, the costume used is a woven cloth typical of the Batak tribe, which is called Ulos. So what they use is called Ulos. The dance is very beautiful and fun too. Even many foreign tourists who like this Tortor dance. I love to share information with all my friends. So that in addition to discussions and friendships in MyLot, our insight into world culture can also increase. If I may ask, do you have a lot of traditional dances at your place? can you name one of the traditional dances of your area? Photo : Google

I’m from the USA and we are a melting pot of so many cultures. Therefore, each is unique and has its own tradition and culture. We don’t have a national dance.
