Rababah/Bedouin Activity – 2 Hours

This is a hands-on acitivity during which you will watch and participate in the making of a tradional Rababah while having an authentic Bedouin experience. The Rababah is a one-string Bedouin instrument played at night and with which poems are recited. Our event organiser will also you how it is played. Should you wish to make your own Rababah to take home, please let us know. Price will obviously vary…

Oud (fragrance) Activity – 2 Hours
