Questions about the Music and dance of Kuwait

Posted by theresewu on November 2, 2006

HELLO everyone~
This is Teresa. I’ve read some articles about the culture of Kuwait and I find the traditional music of Kuwait is interesting such as the Al-Fann, Al-Fareesa and Al Arda Al Bahariya and I have some questions about them.

I know that the Al-Fann is a kind of wedding song and also the Al-Khamary and Al-Sameri are both the wedding dance. Does that mean that those wedding dance and music are necessary performed on the wedding ceremony or nowadays they are just performed as a kind of traditional dance and music?

Also about the Al-Fareesa, I know that it’s a dance which women need to be disguised as men and it’s a battle between a horseman and 2 attackers which is quite special and i wanna know if there is an interesting reason/ cause of this special dance?

At last, since Taiwanese young people who like to dance mostly would prefer dancing New Jazz and Hip-Hop (ex. girls mostly prefer New Jazz and boys prefer hip-hop), i curious about that what kind of dance do the young people of Kuwait mostly prefer dancing?

I’ll be very happy to get your responses! ^-^
