my boss works harder than anybody in the office and my boss is cooler than your boss... good thing no one at work knows about my blog... Barbara on the dance floor at the post Smithsonian Folklife Festival "social"

good times at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival
lots of work goes into putting on the Smithsonian Folklife Festival
some people work hard and then party hard
I think the Smithsonian employs some of these people

interns and staff join in on the fun with festival participants during performances at the end of festival social 
amazing collection of people

The Mongolian band, Yinhesiqin, 
I heard so much about them from their performances on the China side of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival
but I did not chance on seeing them
I saw them on the grounds... but I did not see them perform on the stage

glad I had a chance to see them live

but... I was not cool enough to get on the dance floor
instead... I tried to document things
my shooting without a flash style of photography gives me what I get

this is what I got

We caught this audio of Ih Tsetsn performing a Folklife Festival favorite, "The Handsome Horse," on June 26th from the Moonrise Stage. The seven member group is originally from the prairies of Inner Mongolia, but are now based in ‪#‎Beijing‬. They are known for performing khoomei throat-singing, as well as more contemporary songs, like "The Handsome Horse."
