No. 0955 Sufi Dancers

The Sufi Dancers in Egypt offer a colourful spinning alternative to their Turkish dervish counterparts. In Egypt, the whirling dancers have developed a full entertainment out of their dance which can include everything from nursing a pretend cloth baby (truly, was interesting to see how feminine a form the dance - which is only done by men - takes) to balancing objects. Fabulously impressive.
