  • The Sufi Tanoura show with the music and the whirling dervishes was the highlight of my trip to Cairo. It is in an open air theater in the courtyard of an old historic building in Cairo's Khan-e-khail...  more »
  • On my 22-day journey through Egypt, I can safely say that this was the best attraction of Cairo and Top Five of all Egypt, superior, including the visit to the pyramids. As a musical connoador, especially pop and rock music, I am also sure to say that this music/dance/performance show also features the 5 best attractions I have ever had in my entire life, although it is not inserted in my musical taste. It's surreal! Fantastic! Divine! I have no words to convey the emotion I had when I watched this incredible spectacle. Excellent musicians, dancers, performists, faithful, many of the times in the same artist. The Magic Music, the whirls of 15, 20 minutes, the possibility of reaching Nirvana, the unusual instruments, make this spectacle something that you probably have not experienced before. I don't remember the day of the introductions; Only know that it is limited to once a week (information from November/18). See above. It is right next to the Khan El Khalili market and the most beautiful mosque in Cairo, that of Al-Azhar. Don't lose that for nothing!

  • Gorgeous and exotic place to enjoy traditional Tanoura dance and music (عرض التنورة)
  • Wanna do something different while in Cairo? Then come here. We went to see Drum Dialogue for Peace and it's great. 75 pounds for foreigners but I was in a group of Egyptians and only paid 5.
