Grooving with Rameau

I've been catching up with one of my other lives over on LiveJournal. Maggie Brinkley (aka Gauroth) posted this video clip (the Rondeau and Danse du grand calumet de la paix, from Jean-Philippe Rameau's opera Les Indes Galantes) with the comment "The music is beautiful; the dancing is very, very French. It's earworming me now, so why not let you lot suffer, too?" A comment which omits only one essential word to describe the music: funky.

You guys are SO going to be humming that for the next half-hour.

Surely they are doing the Chicken Dance for part of this? I do see what you mean about the music though!

Nah, they're meant to be native Americans so it'll be the Turkey Dance. Good call, though.
