Photographer's Note

The El Tanoura dance troupe performs three nights a week in the beautiful Wikalat el Ghouri located in the bustling El Azhar quarter in Cairo. It first starts with the musicians playing various instruments that captivate the audience and then appear the dancers in their skirts of vibrant colours. The whirling dancers of a Sufi order bedazzle the ogling crowd with stunning colours. Their apparent state of trance leaves everyone watching transfixed. After 2 hours of tireless displays of flashing hues, everyone is stunned but left yearning for more. Egypt is a joy to visit!
