About

MICRONESIAN PACIFIC ISLAND CHAMORU DANCE OF THE NORTHERN MARIANA ISLANDS

Discover the grace and beauty of traditional Chamoru music and dance from the Micronesian Pacific island of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands. The intricate hand movements and swaying hips of the vibrant tuleti dance (dance of the bird), the precision and power of the uritao (warrior dance) and rhythmic Chamoru drumming revive the ancient ways of the Chamoru culture.

Special guests: UnoHit San Diego
