Guedra

This is a YouTube clip of a traditional dance of Morocco called Guedra. Done by the Tuareg Berber tribe, it is not considered a dance but a ritual, to share peace and love between everyone. However, the history of the dance is hard to find. If anyone knows of anything I missed, please let me know.
