Baila is a form of folk dance that is popular in Sri Lanka. Supposedly the Portuguese brought this tradition over. Since I haven’t had any time to blog lately – and I am staying until June so you will have plenty more from me. I thought I’d post this interesting Sinhalese music video that gives a modern twist to baila dancing and music. There is also a link of the traditional music and dance for you to compare and contrast. Enjoy!
