“Bit too loud at times but was really really good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2012

These dancers and musicians are just out of this world. If you dont mind a bit of a cheesy touristy kind of attraction then this definately should be on your list of things to do. We had a great time! The dancers are SUPERB!

“Stunning Egyptian cultural heritage performance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

We attended the Al-Tannoura dance performance – also know as the Sufi dance performance, at the Wikala Al-Ghouri in Islamic Cairo, and were amazed at the brilliant performance.
The show lasts about an hour and a half and starts with a musical interlude with drums and various traditional instruments; this was then followed by a Al-Tannoura dancer who spun around for about 45 minutes without stopping, while moving his different coloured skirts. Various different musical items followed and the show ended with a trio of Al-Tannoura dances spinning together with their brightly coloured skirts lifting and falling.
The whole performance was conducted on an elevated stage with professional lighting and sound equipment.
What makes this performance great is that it is free of charge due to the fact that it is a religious performance.
The performance is held three times a week (Monday. Wednesday and Saturday) at 08:00 pm.
Just one thing, arrive at least a hour before the time to ensure that you get an entrance ticket and a good seat. The doors are closed when all the tickets are finished and the seats are full. On our visit we arrived more that an hour before the show and all the seats were taken about a half an hour before it started.
Photography is allowed, but no video work – this is strictly enforced.
This performance is a stunning Egyptian cultural heritage performance, held in a World Heritage Site, and is an absolute must if you visit Cairo.
