Posted in 1969-1991 Barre period, Religion, Video by rickjdavies on 29 December, 2008

“Dhikr… is an Islamic practice that focuses on the remembrance of God. Dhikr as a devotional act often includes the repetition of the names of Allah…A group dhikr ceremony in Arabic countries is usually called the hadrah”  (from the Wikipedia entry on dhikr)

 

Undated dhikr, possibly from the 1980s. Long, good sound.
