Body percussion with munks

Namobuddah is a monastery a 2-3 hours drive from Kathmandu.
It is situated in the mountaions with a view of a beautiful valley. Around 200 monks live in that place. A small, isolated society which in many ways resembles a folk school or independent boarding school in the countryside. A small, plain café/kiosk next to the monastery, where I used to go, when I needed a break from my work on mixing sound recordings from Kathmandu. Usually I ordered a masala milk tea.
When the monks learned that I was creating music, they became very interested, and therefore I showed them a few videos. They found body percussion the funniest thing, and they wanted to learn how to do it.
So I showed them a few simple things.
