The Kandy Cultural Show is a celebration of Kandyan dance, an energetic series of manoeuvres – all performed to various forms of mesmerising percussion. The performers wear a colourful display of elaborate costumes in the form of beads, tassels, and sparkles, gyrating to the rhythmic sounds of traditional Sri Lankan drumming. The beat comes from the Geta Beraya, a drum only used in Kandyan dance, which appears to warrant its overuse. The outfits are topped off with gravity-defying headgear which can only be worn by males. It’s all pulled together as fit Kandyans perform vigorous hand movements and impressive backflips over the course of the next hour. The Kandy cultural show is a great performance and its a celebration of everything that makes Sri Lanka a fantastic place to visit. Bright, energetic entertainment that will have both tourists and travelers reaching for their smartphone to capture the swirling fabulousness. The event is topped off by the more experienced dancers swallowing fire and walking barefoot over some flaming briquettes.
