Hari Raya Haji Dancer - Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

A drunk, topless man plays his air guitar as bands performed as part of the Hari Raya celebrations near Pasar Seni in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

A fellow backpacker and I were returning to our hostel when we heard a performance across the street from Pasar Seni. Intrigued, we went to investigate. One of the hostel workers told us that the event was part of the Hari Raya Haji celebrations. The actual day of Hari Raya Haji in 2013 is Tuesday, October 15.

While listening to the band, the backpacker friend spotted a topless man dancing to the band’s music. I got into position to frame him between bystanders and at an angle such that the blue light above him provided some nice separation light.

How do you celebrate Hari Raya Haji?
