Dabke Like A Palestinian, Best Dance Track

Palestine is not the place you think of first when you imagine a party, but those two videos may just change your mind. Let's talk about the most common dance from Dabke, it's popular in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. Palestine is an extension of those other countries, cultures and landscape. Small villages around Palestine are the places where you are most likely to see those dances.

Then the big cities came in and tried to take credit for them, along came the politicians who started using that dance as they called for freedom, unity and reviving the local heritage in the face of the occupation. But this art form has moved from an entertainment at weddings and family gatherings to a political statement about survival and holding tight to the land. I would think Native Indians in the Americas had to preserve their land through dances
