'Jawahir,' which is the Arabic word for 'jewels,' dressed in traditional North African costume of forty years ago gave two excellent performances of North African belly dancing at Ross-on-Wye Market House. Laila Ajbar, a dance teacher from Newport is the leader of the group and is trying to keep the 'Berber' culture, indigenous to North Africa from dying. In the second photograph down, Laila can be seen (on the right) performing a traditional High Atlas step duet.

The bottom photograph is of 'Flying Carpet Percussion' who also gave two great performances at the Market House. Flying Carpet Percussion are from Hereford and practise of a Friday evening.
