"Great Dance" features striking images of the gule wamkulu (pronounced "goolay wumkooloo"), or "great dance," practiced by villagers throughout Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia, in Africa. A gule wamkulu performance brings the community together in times of celebration and of mourning: masked and woven characters represent the ancestors of the people who have come back to the land of the living to instruct the community in proper behavior.
