Al-Bar’ah, music and dance from the Dhofar valleys of Oman

 

 

Al-Bar’ah is a Bedouin musical tradition from the Dhofar mountain ranges in southern Oman. It takes the form of a warlike dance performed to the sound of the drum and poetry sung in the dialect of the local tribes. Al-Bar’ah is performed in a semicircle by ten to thirty men and women. While singing and clapping, two male dancers armed with khanjars (daggers), perform codified dance movements, brandishing their daggers above shoulder level. The dancers’ steps are not complex, but coordination with other performers and with the music requires considerable skill.
