Devol Madua Part 6 Pujah and Consultation



After the Presentations whilst the drummer and dancer drummed and sang, the Clairvoyant entered his devale and made special puja offerings  to the Deities. Outside in the Performance Area before the toran the main officiant was parading around singing and beating a small drum. Was this the extra drum Presentation described by Obeysekere?
