The Embera entertain on instruments they handmade from local natural materials, an example of their traditional "live off the land" way of life.
The Embera here have embraced cotton fabric over their traditional palm fibers, but they still go topless (even women) and paint their faces and bodies black with jagua fruit. Although the black jagua is practical, with sunblocking properties, it's also an artistic expression, with some Embera modeling elaborate designs.
