Video of Perahera (a small excerpt)

I found this on my laptop this evening after I went through some old files and photos. This is a video I shot of Perahera, a Buddhist festival and parade in Sri Lanka during my visit. Unfortunately, my camera is rubbish so the quality isn’t that great.

The first part of this was my favorite and you’ll see why. The dancers are using long strips of cane or “veval” in Sinhalese.

And yes, those are elephants… with lights.

Edit_

Aaaand YouTube ate the audio! Well, enjoy this silent movie instead.
