The drummers of the Bear Festival of Dărmănești, Romania. Festivity hold on new years eve. The drums help the bear dancers get into a trance like state, reminding us of the probably shamanistic roots of this custom. . . . . . . . #romaniamagica #shaman #newyear #customs #tradition #bear #ig_romania #culture #instabear #livefolk #beardancer #darmanesti #uniqefestivals #travel #tourism #picoftheday #portraitphotography #celebration #portrait #wear #costume #nature #bestdiscovery #bbctravel #drummers #trance #fashion #traditions #folkmagazine

I am documenting for the fourth consecutive year the Bear Dance Festival of Dărmănești Romania. It is a tradition that has its roots in a pre-Christian ritual of healing and rebirth, symbolized by the bears cyclical way of being active in the summer and hibernating in the winter. On new years eve the villagers get into their costumes made of actual bear skin which are passed on from one generation to another, and accompanied by the sound of drums they visit from house to house with their bear dance, wishing good fortune and health for the year to come. It is an act of reconnecting with nature, healing and being reborn. The Transylvania region of Romania has the biggest population of bears in the whole European Union with numbers as high as 30 000 bears. The people of this region coexisted with this highly respected animal for centuries and to this day bears are part of the life of the community through songs, stories and traditions such as the anual bear dance. • • • • #romaniapitoreasca #shaman #newyear #customs #tradition #bear #ig_romania #culture #instabear #romaniamagica #bearheaddress #beardancer #darmanesti #uniqefestivals #travel #tourism #picoftheday #portraitphotography #people #celebration #portrait #fun #wear #costume #nature #animalcostume #natgeo #bearhoodie #berserker #fur
