There was an amazing rhythm coming from the drummers and singers on the stage and the room was a swirl of men and woman dancing in concentric circles around the deity in the centre of the room. Occasionally the beats would speed up and chants of 'WUP WUP!' would echo around the hall.

As we were left we were presented with a gift of fruit and sweets
