A troupe of ghazeeyeh. Ghawazee dancers performing in an Egyptian café on the rhythms of doholla and riqq (tambourine).
According to a traveller who saw the ghawazee at work in Gaza, the dancers never moved their legs when they moved their arms and they never moved their arms when
moving the legs. He described the music as monotomous and boring and the dances indecent. Of course moving your hips was considered indecent by the European travellers.
