Zar 02 by MahmoudYakut Zar 02 by MahmoudYakut
my second submission of this series, "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
