Samoan Dance Fiafia
Talofa. Afio Mai! That's "Hello. Come On In!" in Samoan. Fa'amolemole (Please) enjoy this traditional Samoan Dance or fiafia at Virgin Cove, Samoa July 2011. The word "fiafia" is used in the South Pacific, with many meanings such as "celebration," "Get-together," or "happy."
We saw two Fire Dances or siva afi and several dances performed by different groups of men and women. There are no grass skirts or hula in Samoan dance. The performers usually wear lavalava (looks like a skirt or sarong.) The men were wearing anklets made from leaves. The fabric of the women’s clothing was beautiful batik.
