Tanoura Dancer 9

15 Jan 2013

The Tanoura dance is performed by Sufi men, Darawish. The dance is similar to the Sufi whirling in Egypt. In this version, the men wear long colorful skirts, where each color on the skirt represents one Sufi order.

The performance of "El Tanoura" consists of 3 parts:  The introduction which is a demonstration of the various musicians and their instruments.  The Tanoura presentation dance, which is a warm-up of sorts introducing the dancers, and finally the Sufic Tanoura dance (Darawishes)

-The philosophical basis for the spinning is from the Mawlawis who say that the movement in the world begins at a certain point and end at the same point, therefore the movement has to be circular.

 In this environment photography is a real act of fun, memorizing these colorful moments.
