Resources for Zaar Dance and Ritual

Also, please look at the contextual information provided by Mazaher, a Zaar troupe in Egypt (pictured above) I was fortunate to see a few times in 2007 . Finally, though the entry itself is a little flimsy, Wikipedia has good cross-listings for deeper research not available online. Look under "zaar" if this link doesn't take you there.
