A Fakanau is a traditional Tuvaluan male dance, accompanied by singing and rhythmic clapping.

(Tuvaluan is a Polynesian island nation, called Ellice Islands. It is located in the Pacific Ocean, midway between Hawaii and Australia.)

Fakanau is described as having "a tune that is between speech and singing which was performed while dancers are standing on their feet."
