Kab Kar Dance from Murray Island

Our Culture

Added by Oz Outback

Description Boys from Djarragun College, an indigenous school near Cairns in north Queensland, Australia, perform the "Kab Kar", a traditional dance from Mer (Murray Island) in the eastern Torres Strait Islands, at the Townsville Cultural Fest in 2010. They wear the "dhari" headdress made with cockatoo feathers. This was the very first time these boys performed this complex traditional dance.
