The hospitality of the Bedouins and the wonderful atmosphere in the Bedouin tent enchant us while the music rings out in the desert. The traditional music on the Rababah is part of the Bedouin culture in Jordan. The photo shows a Bedouin playing the musical instrument.

A tea with traditional music sweetens the lunch break in Wadi Rum. Perhaps there is also a little Bedouin magic in the air, because the peculiar musical instrument suddenly becomes stubborn in our own hands - after a few weird attempts we like to listen to the idiosyncratic but wonderfully melodic sound again, elicit the practiced finger of Rababah. The hospitality of the Bedouins enchanted us once again. We gratefully enjoy this wonderful atmosphere in the Bedouin tent while the tones of this unique music ring out through the desert.
