    Stop At: Al-Tannoura Egyptian Heritage Dance Troupe, Wikala Al-Ghouri Giza, Cairo 11511 Egypt

    Our representative will pick you up for the Al-Tannoura Egyptian Heritage Dance Troupe, one of the most recommended shows in Cairo. The Al-Tannoura show takes place at Wekalet El Ghoury Each Saturday, Monday and Wednesday.

    Cairo Sufi Show-Ghory Palace by Wekalet El Ghouri is an architecturally stunning arts center in El Azhar area in Central Cairo, operating under the Ministry of Culture and the Cultural Development Fund (CDF).Since finalizing restorations to the Wekalet in October 2005, it has become a hot-spot for organizing cultural events. The most popular being the bi-weekly El Tannoura dance performance. The performance is similar to the more commonly known whirling dervishes; however this version of the indigenous dance incorporates instruments and other additional elements.

    After arriving in the bustling area surrounding Khan El Khalili, we set about finding the Wekalet El Ghouri Center. We will enter an area filled with merchants selling copper and other handcrafts, and in the hub of this area, we found the Center, easily recognizable by its beautiful architecture, as well as the queues of people awaiting the start of the show.

    A group of performers appear with an array of instruments ranging from the Daf (tambourine) to the Oud and Ney (flute). After a few solos by various singers, a vocalist appeared on a balcony. This specific vocalist, officially known as the Muezzin, sings of spirituality. The second part of the performance, the Sufi Tannoura Dance (El Darawish) is derived from the dance performed as part of a Sufi ritual. The third part of the performance incorporates a more spectacular dance, more based on the showing of skills and costume design.
