The uniforms are designed by the soloist, which is also the creator of the songs, a process that takes place during nighttime. Some of the moves and lyrics are also inspired by the traditional harvesting and other social activities. They usually meet twice per week, but more often before performance. They are very keen to perform for tourists, and a show with these old ladies is guaranteed to brighten your day!
