Zar 01 by MahmoudYakut Zar 01 by MahmoudYakut
"Zar" is a mysterious ritual, a mixture of Egyptian and African culture that evolved over the ages, some times it is done for religious purposes and sometimes for exorcism. It is a dance accompanied by progressive intense percussion. These people you see in the photo are real "Zar" performers, who also do a show in a small place in down town Cairo, when you see them you feel like you are looking at some characters from a history book or you have moved a hundred years back in time... it was a truly unique experience, thanks for my beloved fiance who took me to this place, although she got scarred from this "paranormal" atmosphere and had some nightmares about them :D

hihihihi, yes I was scared especially from that woman on the right! But I was mostly scared of you since I felt you were really enjoying that :D. Thanks for being there with me, I told you how much I longed to visit that place and I'm really happy that my first time there was with you. Mwah
