Note that unlike Greece and Turkey, there are suites of four karsilama dances, different for men and women, some of them other than the standard 9 8 tempo. Traditional music is modal, based on the maqam (Arabian maqam)s. Both Greek and Turkish Cypriots use the violin as the main solo instrument, accompanied by the lute for Greek Cypriots and the ud for Turkish Cypriots. Accordion, percussion (percussion instrument) and penny whistle (''pithiavli'') are also used. Notable performers of Greek Cypriot folk music include singers Michael Tterlikkas, Christo Sikkis and Michalis Hatzimichail. A niche artist of traditional music is Gianni Delfinogamis, a champion of many ''tshiatísta'' (Cypriot Greek: τσιατίστα, "spite song ") competitions. The ''tsiatísta'' is improvised antiphonal singing akin to the Cretan mantinada, with satirical and comedic intent, usually performed between friends or relatives poking fun at each other. Another famous singer and composer, in Cyprus and Greece, of traditional Cypriot and popular music is Mihalis Violaris. Greek-Cypriot folk music is most closely related to the Nisiotika (the folk music of the Aegean Islands) and especially so to the music of the Dodecanese.

Brazil

known as the '''Indigo Macaw''', is a rare Brazilian parrot with a highly restricted range. It is metallic blue with a faint, often barely visible, tinge of green, and a yellow patch of skin at the base of the heavy, black bill. It weighs around 950 g (2 pounds) and is 75 cm (30 inches) long. It was named after the poet, author, and artist, Edward Lear, who published many drawings and paintings of live parrots in zoos and collections. One of his paintings in his book ''Illustrations of the Family of the Psittacidae, or Parrots'' strongly resemble this species, although at the time it was believed to be a Hyacinth Macaw — a species which is larger, darker, and has a differently shaped patch of yellow skin adjacent to the base of the bill. Portuguese rule Benguela, a Portuguese fort from 1587, was founded in 1617 by the Portuguese (Portugal) under Manuel Cerveira Pereira, 8th Governor of Angola (Portuguese West Africa) (1604–1607). It was long the centre of an important trade, especially in slaves (Slavery in Angola) to Brazil and Cuba. Ships anchor about a mile off the shore, in 4 to 6 fathoms (7 to 11 m) and transfer loads to smaller boats which use five or six jetties (jetty) in the town. However the nearby deep-water sheltered harbour of Lobito is a much larger port. thumb left 100px First Coat of Arms of the city of Benguela, about late XVII century (Image:Blason of Benguela (ancient).svg) '''Rocinha''' (

During the Second World War there was another drop in ascents of the mountain. The most remarkable ascent during this period was by three Italian (Italy)s who were being held in a British POW (prisoner of war) camp at the base of the mountain in Nanyuki. They escaped from camp to climb the mountain's third peak, Point Lenana, before "escaping" back into camp. Felice Benuzzi, the team leader, retold his story in the classic book National Geographic ranked the book #74 in its "100 Greatest Adventure Books of All Time" ''No Picnic on Mount Kenya'' (1946).
