To celebrate Baa Atoll's designation as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, Four Seasons Maldives hosted a Baa Youth Boduberu Challenge from December 16 to 17, 2011.

Organized in conjunction with Male'-based cultural arts institution, Varutha, and sponsored by Four Seasons Maldives resorts, the Boduberu contest is open to groups of performers aged 15-25 years from the 13 local islands in Baa Atoll.

Boduberu is the traditional form of music and dance in the Maldives that uses drums made from hollowed coconut wood. A lead singer chants the lyrics and a chorus follows as they clap and dance to the beat of the drums until it reaches a frenzied crescendo. Known to be introduced by the African community living in the Maldives in the 11th century, Boduberu is traditionally performed at festive occasions and celebrations.

Stay tuned for more cultural celebrations sponsored by Four Seasons Maldives resorts at Kuda Huraa and Landaa Giraavaru.
