Surorile Osoianu - Paparuda
It's safe to say that rainmaking is one of humanity's oldest rituals, spanning from Africa to Asia and North America. The Paparuda is performed in Romania and the Balkans by young girls wearing leaves and small vines as makeshift clothing, who sing and dance in the hopes of ending the dreaded droughts.
