Africa is known for its unique culture and traditions, and one of the things that make the continent admirable and enviable is its traditional drumming and dancing.

However, some of the African dances are so mind-boggling that they make no sense to strangers, but the locals who practice them know what they mean and they make sense to them.

A traditional dance alleged to have originated from Pedi in the Limpopo Province of South has gained a lot of traction online due to its bizarreness, and it appears the custodians of the traditional dances are shy to own it.

The video shows a man dressed up in a traditional regalia, basically fighting with water in two basins placed in the middle of a group of local drummers and singers.

South African Twitter user Bokamoso shared a video of the dance on social media, and it has left South Africans themselves in shock.

According to Briefly.co.za, Twitter user Iam_laud, who is Pedi, did not recognize the dance.

Another Pedi Twitter user named OnJourneyOf_ said: "For clarity this I've never seen before."

Thela28 asked: "Why is he fighting the basins?"

Mfundo_Conco said: "Kinda looks painful."

Watch the video below and appreciate the richness of African culture:
