Prior to performing a ceremonial dance from the initiation complex, men of Mbanua (Graciosa Bay, Ndende) bathe in the sea first. Then they adorn themselves with circlets and rings on their upper arms. Helpers fasten the ear jewellery on and paint their faces. The dancers get ornamentation for their chests, dance aprons, adornment for their heads, noses and legs. Then the men walk to the neighbouring village of Möneu. There, on the village dancing ground, they perform a slow-pace circular dance to an ombla initiation chant. Then men from Möneu join in, and together they dance a "common dance". Finally the village of Möneu shows its gratitude with dishes of ceremonial pudding.
