This is "Awa Odori" or "Awadance", which is another Japanese seasonal event for Sumemr. Awa is an old name of location, that is 600 km far from Tokyo, Awa odori is the origin in Awa region. but recently in Tokyo too there are many Awa odori dance festival. I already introduceed at the end of July and last year too.
This one is very Japanese and original, not same as "Samab" but sama passions and vigors are so rich.

High Emotions and passion - all in a cluster.. The composition explores the expressions of the dancers all grouped together. The costumes and the instruments are dominated by red and while colours - hence the tinge of reddish hue.
The clarity of the photograph with light being well distributed through out enhances the image of the group with darker shades all through the borders.
Thanks for sharing.

Hi dear friend,
All those peoples show various attitudes that you rendered so well!
Some look angry,others look concerned...
Have a nice day over there...

Hello dear Takero,
a very interesting and vibrant group portrait, an intriguing moment of the choreography where the dancers are seemingly performing the same movement but each in a very individual way. I like very much the sharpness and lighting as well as the way they stand out against the dark backdrop. Their formation reminds me of a firework. I wish we could see all the faces and expressions but realize that was impossible to capture. Some expressions have a great intensity and help the viewer establish a closer contact with the performers and their act. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a great weekend and month,

Shown great group of dancers in traditional Japanese costumes, all the same. Strange instruments in their hands. Colossal photo quality.

The movement and facial expressions have made a fascinating picture. A very good tight frame captures the exciting mood very well. Excellent.
Kind Regards, Ann
