Whirling Dervishes are men who spin in circles to Turkish religious music. Dervishes are from an Islamic movement called Sufi. It takes many months of practice for the Dervishes to spin without feeling dizzy.
Listen (00'45) to 'Kaside' from Les Derviches De Turquie - Musique Soufi (Playasound PS 65120)
