Kiniwe performs Tora at Tufts University African Drum and Dance Festival March 7, 2009. David Locke is the Director and Professor. Tora is a game like dance in which dancers knock buttocks together on the cadential moment of the drumming. Tora began many centuries ago with a domestic tragedy in the household of the paramount chief. Women kindly bumped a bereaved woman back away from her dead relatives. After many years Tora became a happiness dance for females. The drums say, "Listen to the elders [to avoid trouble]."
