Al-Khaleej 2.0 (The African experience edition) : The Arabian Gulf is more than what the West thinks it is. This part lecture and part movement class is especially formulated in celebration and awareness of Black African traditions, the vast African diversity within the culture and the African ways of life that has established what the Arabian Gulf is today. In this second part series we will further discuss the African foundations in Khaleeji ways of life that have gone unrecognized , erased from Khaleeji culture and common knowledge especially to the rest of the world. This all includes: discussing historically African populated areas specifically in KSA , Afro-khaleej dances and the etiquette, religious aspects , deeper historical information , diving deeper into Afro-Khaleeji musicality, musical instrumentation and various styles of dress . If time permits we will discuss Afro-Khaleeji foods, hairstyles, make-up, beauty and more.
Please bring a notebook, pen, a snack, and lots of hydration…. you will need it!
