Hailing from Port Said in Egypt, El Tanbura perform mesmerizing ancient Hadra and Dama Sufi songs on a variety of traditional instruments.

Egyptian dervishes whirl to this highly rhythmic and spiritual music driven by the Simsimiyya, a Lyre harp dating back to the Pharaohs, significant in its use in both exorcisms and healing ceremonies.

Produced by the Barbican.
