Malta Folk Dancing

Six dancers in traditional eighteenth century costumes performing Maltese folk dances called Il-Maltija. 

 Il-Maltija the name given to the country dance (Maltese kuntradanza) which has come to be considered as the Maltese National Dance

Maltese dance plays a major part in the Maltese culture and way of life, just as religion does.

Maltese folklore is the folk tradition which has developed in Malta over the centuries, and expresses the cultural identity of the Maltese people. Maltese folklore, traditions and legends still live in the minds of the older-generations, and these are slowly being studied and categorized, like any other European tradition.

My goal is to travel to all the countries of the world. I count 197 countries, starting with the United Nations list of 193 and adding Taiwan, Vatican, Kosovo and Palestine. For the rest of my life, I want to see and experience as much of the world as possible, while documenting it in photographs and observations.
