Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The M'alayah is a kind of dance common in the Middle Eastern Countries. It is most commonly done by the people of Oman although it is also known to be performed in other North African countries as well. The dance is usually misnamed by calling it various names such as um-alaya, dagni, etc. Although the name and its origin, due to the obscurity of the rather taboo nature of the dance in the strictly conservative countries in the Middle East, is doubtful, the M'alayah is mostly considered to be primarily of African origin and is associated with people of African ancestry living in the Persian Gulf region.show more
