Default Making Music and Sound - Zaghrootah

The Zaghrootah is the sound that the ladies make at weddings, engagements and many other times around celebrations (like when they cut the material for my now wife's wedding dress) here in Egypt.

It basically sounds like LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLEEEEE...... that's as good as I can describe it LOL.

Here we have the mother or the bride as the bride and groom leave the church. The silly videographer was in my way (again) for this shot but I love the moment.

Mark,
I think its called ululation and as we can see from your wonderful photo it captures the joy of the occasion wonderfully.
Aloha

I'm sure in other countries etc there are other names, I just know the Egyptian one. I'm glad you like the photo. I wouldn't usually include a photo to a couples finished series with a videographer getting in the way but I like this so much it is included for them as there is a personal attachment with the mother.

Ah, yes - I know the sound you're talking about.

Although I can share your frustration of others (e.g. videographers) being in the way of wedding shots, in a way the hand and the end of the camera lens add to the 'energy' of the shot, even if they distract a bit from the lolololol lady and the couple.

Cheers

Paul
