Saman dance, also known as the “Dance of the thousand hands”, is part of the cultural heritage of the Gayo people in Sumatra. Boys and young men perform the Saman sitting on their heels or kneeling in tight rows. Each wears a black costume embroidered with colourful Gayo motifs symbolising nature and noble values. 

The leader sits in the middle of the row and leads the singing of verses, mostly in the Gayo language. These offer guidance and can be religious, romantic or humorous in tone. Dancers clap their hands, slap their chests, thighs and the ground, click their fingers, and sway and twist their bodies and heads in time with the shifting rhythm – in unison or alternating with the moves of opposing dancers. 

The result is a breathtakingly energetic and virtuoso dance. We cannot guarantee you won’t start wobbling spontaneously on the rhythm of the dancers! Not for easily bruised!
