Here is another sample, more typical of the Tunisian Malouf type of music, with Lotfi and musicians in traditional garb (Djebba and Kiswa) but with old fashioned tall Turkish type fez headdress instead of the more typical Tunisian Sheshia Tunsia.!v=xRYe...eature=related
I also collect traditional garb from different Arab countries, particularly headdresses, since I feel craftsmen might disappear and their traditional stuff with them. My best item so far is a nice Tunisian silken Djebba, hand woven and hand embroidered. Tunis souk is indeed quite interesting when you leave the main road, too touristic and go to visit the specialized craftsmen quarters, the weavers, or tailors, the makers of Seshias, the jewelers or the shisha stuff....
