The Tannoura show is the most amazing Egyptian Folk musical nights, it's performed by ‘El Tanoura Troupe for the Cultural Heritage’, which has given varied performances in over 30 countries. A group of performers appears 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 appears 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.
