Isle of Bute: An Evening with the Hakawati – Syrian Tradition

The storyteller, or hakawati, was a central figure in traditional Syrian society. Just a few years ago, famous storytellers still commanded large audiences in Damascus and elsewhere. Dressed in traditional hakawati clothes, Syrian storyteller Bassam Dawood shares some of the stories from this rich oral tradition. Bilingual support by Dima AlMekdad.
