Everybody post a video and pictures of your regional style of dance, preferably with background info.

Let's try to keep it to only one video per dance.

This is Lezginka (named after the ancient Muslim Lezgin people of Daghestan and Azerbaijan), or as it is also called in Azerbaijan, Şeyh Şamil. It's meant to imitate the movements of an Eagle.



Most Caucasian people have their own variations of flavors of this certain dance, except Armenians who's dances are very different. Turks in the provinces of Ardahan, Kars, and Igidir perform these dances as well since many of them of are of Caucasian descent.

Here it is, Lezginka or Seyh Samil.

Is there something wrong with you? We refer to the dance itself as "Seyh Samil", after the person. There is also a specific type of music that you dance Seyh Samil to, hence the picture of the music album in my previous post.

I always wondered where the "Kafkaz" clothes used in these dances came from, the female ones are very distinct and original however, the males look like Turkmen costume, the famous Kalpak-Telpek hat and the jacket.
 
Also another interesting point, there are dances of Turkmenistan and especially the Khwarzemshah region of Ozbekistan which have some similar dances and music to those in the Kafkaz.
 
I wonder if there have been studies into if they had some cultural contact with each other and to what extent it was?

You raise very good points Bulldog, Turk cultural influence was actually very strong in the Caucasus and also Russia.

The Caucasus experienced significant periods of Hun, Gokturk, Kypchak, Khazar, Seljuk, and Ottoman influence. There were also numerous "Hanliks" in the area, or Khan-ships if you will, like the Nogai, Kumyk, Astrakhan, Karabagh, etc.

The trouble with the Caucasus is that it's so diverse it's hard to tell what came from what :)
