Habaraduwa Devil Dance

In the South of Sri Lanka Devil Dance is very popular as it serves two different purposes.

Until today many people in the countryside of Sri Lanka believe in the healing effects of the traditional Devil Dance.

As shown on these photos, it is the rural families, who have the most confidence in the healing impact of a Devil Dance session.

The costs are massive and a positive result can surely not always be expected.

The girl shown on the photo was reported to suffer from mental disturbances and her family was spending around 50.000 rupees every few months to host such a big Devil Dance in the Habaraduwa country side.
