A part of Russia, located in the Caucasus Mountains north of Azerbaijan, that along with its neighbor Chechnya, has become another hellhole because of al-Qaeda. Daghestan is home to small tribes of people speaking over thirty languages, some Caucasic (e.g. Avar, Lak, Rutul, Bezhta, Dido, Lezgin, Tsakhur etc.), Turkic (e.g. Noghai and Kumyk), Semitic (e.g. Assyrian, Hebrew and Arabic), Indo-European (e.g. Russian, Armenian, Greek etc.), and even Tungusic (e.g. Kalmyk, a close relative to Mongolian).
The Dept. of the State has issued travelers' advisories for people who want to visit Daghestan from Azerbaijan: don't even think about it. The borders are closed!
This folk dance from the Pontic Greeks takes credit for being The Most Difficult Greek Dance In the World! Pontos is a region in the extreme northeastern part of Turkey, on the border with Adjaria in the Georgian Republic. Pontic dances are usually characterized by a very martial feeling and trembling movements in the hands, shoulders, and the upper part of the torso, and small, close-to-the-ground movements of the feet. The music for most Pontic Greek dances is usually played on a small, bottle-shaped fiddle called "lyra" or "kementze", or on a small bagpipe called "tulum", with or without "daouli" (hand drum) accompaniment. Most Pontic Greeks have settled in Greek Macedonia, due to oppression by Turks during the rule of the Ottoman Empire.
The dancers at the Greek American Folklore Society in New York are practicing Trygona and Serra.
