March 25, 2016 - Wainyapu (Indonesia). Villagers gather inside the house of the "Rato" - the traditional priest leader - singing a traditional song to call the "Nyale" -  a sea worm that normally appears on the shore on Pasola day. The number of nyale collected is believed to be a sign of the richness of the farmers’ next harvest season. © Thomas Cristofoletti / Ruom
