Courtney Tidwell - Watusii

CORTNEY TIDWELL - WATUSII from Daniel Franke on Vimeo.

I diden´t hear about Courtney Tidwell, before I read on Caribous myspace that Dan Snaith was going to do a remix of the track Watusii. It´s cool track, and I´m looking forward to hearing waht Dan Snaith makes of it.

"In the classic Watusi, the dancer is almost stationary with knees slightly bent, although may advance forward and back by one or two small rhythmic paces. The arms, with palms flat in line, are held almost straight, alternately flail up and down in the vertical. The head is kept in line with the upper torso but may bob slightly to accentuate the arm flailing. The dance, which became popular in the American surf/beach sub-culture of 1960s, may be enhanced if one imagines that ones feet are on sand."
