Video Title:
Al Najoom Dance Troupe at NMAfA, July 14, 2011
Description:
A collaboration with the Sultanate of Oman and the Sultan Qaboos Cultural Center. The troupe hails from Ja'alan Bani Bu Ali an oasis market town in Oman. Traditional Omani music has a long legacy, where the indigenous Arab Islamic culture has combined with external influences from Oman's trading partners in East Africa and Asia. They are recognized not only for the skill of their musicians and the quality of their singing, but also for the energy and exuberance that they bring to each performance.
