Sister of Saidnaya offers you the sights, sounds, and smells of an exotic world. At mahrajans dancing women beckon men into the erotic circle as the rhythmic sounds of the darabuka ring out. Responding to the seduction, the men insinuate themselves slowly but boldly into the erotic circle. When the dubkee begins, the dancers hop and stomp to the increasing beat as they wind around the room. Meanwhile the children laugh, devour the rosewater flavored sweets, and steal the Jordan almonds.
One thought on “Sister of Saidnaya’s Seduction”
Rose Ann Kalister is a wonderful story teller. Sister of Saidnaya is a unique and powerful account of early immigrants from a Syria that is very different from what we see today.
