If you have been on the Nile Cruise or any of the dinner cruise boats on the Nile, one of the entertainment items is always the tanoura. The tanoura is a display by men wearing long, large skirts who twirl around performing some interesting formations.

Egypt’s hottest belly dancer treats us to her moves!

The University of California Santa Barbara Middle East Ensemble has been invited by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture to perform a series of concerts in Cairo and beyond this July 2010.

This is a ZGraphix production.

Tannoura at Al-Ghouri & Al-Azhar Park (Egyptian Drums & Dance)

Al Tannoura Troupe is one of the Egyptian folk troupe, established by the General Organization for Cultural Palaces at Egypt’s Ministry of Culture. The group is based on the capital at the old Fatmis Cairo, mainly at wekalet al ghoury . The Troupe was formed in 1988 at the Ghury Palace, which is specialized in reviving and renovating the inherited artistic and cultural themes that have been endangered or about to diminish.

Egypt’s only Sufi dance troupe — far more raucous and colourful than white-clad Turkish dervishes — puts on a mesmerising performance at the Wikala of Al-Ghouri. It’s a great opportunity to see one of the medieval spaces in use.

Popular and folk musical instruments usually accompany the troupe’s performance like Rababa, Salamia, flute, drums, tambourines and sanjes).  These instruments accelerate the dancers’ warm up and enlighten the colorful atmosphere of the stage performance.
