As part of cultural activities supplementary to the Africa-Arab Summit, two traditional dance troupes from South Africa and Egypt performed at a shopping centre in Kuwait on Friday night.
The performances are part of a sequence of pre-summit functions held ahead of the Kuwait-held November 19-20 summit on the cultural and economic domains.
Organised by Kuwait's National Council for Culture Arts and Letters, the event was open to the public at Souq Sharq Mall.
The troupes performed dances akin to their culture, donning their traditional dress to the delight of crowds who gathered to witness the shows.
As for the Egyptians, a dance known as 'Tannoura' was performed - the dance known for its Sufi origins.
The dance portrays the belief by Sufis that the universe starts at one point and ends at the same point
