Tanoura

A folkloric dance that is an offshoot from Sufi Whirling Dervishes. They are normally performed for tourists now, but I am unsure how long they have been performed.
Unfortunately the video is not great in that clip. Performed by Osama Mimi Farag.
This clip was done by Tara, a professional bellydancer in London.

If anyone out there has anything on this very striking dance, please let me know. This is what I have found so far.
