Greetings from Luxor!
The Banat Mazin are a group of entertainers from Luxor, Egypt specializing in the dance art locally called "raqs shaabi".
This website is a collaborative effort between it's producer Shining and the last active member of the Banat Mazin, Khyria to help share the family's history and reach students around the world who want more resources to learn about this dance.
50% of all proceeds (after expenses) are collected and periodically distributed to Khyria Mazin.
First of its kind, a wonderland online!
Check out the Blog!
See what's coming soon!
