Extra info
Hleka Bafazi is the Xhosa ...

Hleka Bafazi is the Xhosa and Zulu name for a Southern African bird called the Green Wood-Hoopoe. This name is derived from the call that the bird makes which sounds like a group of woman merrily going about their business.Translated into English it means "Laughing Woman". This dance is a tribute to all the women who have made meaningful contributions to my Scottish Country dancing. Amongst the laughing women I include Joan Evans, Terry McBurnie, Rose McMillan, Helen Frame, Urisa Reungsuwan, Coral Epton, Kim Mills and of course my wife Heather.
