The Whirling Dervishes
The 'Whirling Dervishes' at the Hamed El Nile Mosque in the Omdurman district of Khartoum, Sudan.
Sufism, mystical Islamic belief and practice in which Muslims seek to find the truth of divine love and knowledge through direct personal experience of God.
Colourfully decked out, whirling around with sticks, incense,the beating of drums, chanting, singing. Everyone just having a damn good time.
The sun sets.... the call to prayer starts, signalling the end of the Whirling Dervishes.
