An exceptionally cool BBC reporter dug into the YouTube video clip I posted yesterday of Saudis seemingly dancing along to a Michael Jackson song.
This reporter said, hmmm…the sound seems odd — and found the underlying video (posted above) which I think is even more interesting. I’ve never see this kind of dance and like it.
Another example of Saudi southern dance is here.
Thanks to my BBC colleague whose name I will protect for the moment.
More soon. In London today. Head back to Washington, DC tomorrow.
