  1. I am happy you put up videos of this fascinating area. I visited it in 1978 when all this was current an not revival. I would disgree about heads wobbling in time to the music. They never did this in Oas; it was introduced as a “motif” by National folk ensembles, usually run by southern Romanians, who found the Oas style funny. This was common among choreographers of the time, and not just in Romania.
