Khaleeji

 

The clip is from a programme shown on Qatar tv. These settings are called ‘jalsaat’ (s: jalsa) and they’re social occasions where there’s music, singing and dancing. In a relaxed home setting with only the family attending, tea, coffee and sweets are served and people will perform songs to entertain each other. However if there are important guests or its a formal function then professional musicians/dancers are usually employed. The guests at a jalsa can sit and enjoy the music or get up and dance as they like.
