TARIAN TOLAK BALA

This is a dance usually performed after the harvesting season when offerings are made as an act of thanks giving to the spirits who have favoured the community with a good crop. An offering of food is made in a taya to appease the spirits and to ensure their blessings for peace and harmony in the village.
