Fann At-Tanbura

Fann a?-?anb?ra (Arabic: ‎) is a traditional music and dance genre in the Arab states of the Persian Gulf, especially Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman. Musically, the tanb?ra instrument plays a central role, along with several drums and the manjur--an instrument made of several goat hooves wrapped around the waist of the performer.

Men and women both participate in the singing and dance. Fann at-tanbura is closely associated with the Z?r spiritual ritual, and it was originally used in healing practices. Participants would occasionally fall into a trance. In modern times though it is more often a musical performance.
