Cossiers, an ancestral dance

cossiers-an-ancestral-dance

 Six men, a lady and the devil, jumps, rattles, turns, flowers and bouquets of myrtle or basil. These are the elements that make up one of the most mysterious dances of Mallorca, the dance of the cossiers, which can be seen in some villages of the island in special festivities. The “xeremies”, the “tamborino” and “flabiol” perform the music of this dance.
