If you happen to see some locals drumming and dancing to a slow beat, wearing nothing but a sarong and a white short-sleeved banyan, you are watching Maldives’ most popular form of music: Body Beru. The dozen-odd performers usually gather at the end of the hard day to let their hair down. There are always three drummers and a lead singer, while others dance, ring a small bell and produce raspy sounds from an Onugandu, a small piece of bamboo with horizontal grooves. The drumming is absolutely delightful to the ears, and the lyrics speak of heroism, romance or satire. As the song reaches a crescendo, one or two dancers maintain the wild beat with their frantic movements, often falling into trance. The performing of the music is often referred to as “vibrating the island”. PRECIS What to buy in Maldives, What to eat in Maldives? Why people love to stay in Maldives for 10 to 15 days?
