Kamal Deo performs the lengha dance at Arvendra and Bhawna’s wedding. Men performing wedding dances dressed as women is tradition in some Indo-Fijian communities. A cane cutter who lives with his wife and daughter, he earns more money as a wedding dancer with the nickname “Gorilla,” in demand throughout Fiji, than he does cutting cane.
