Middle Eastern Weddings: Zaffa Reception
We specialize in Middle Eastern weddings, offering: zaffas, belly dancers, live arabic music as well as DJs who play both Arab and international music!
In the Arab culture, the zaffa (sometimes spelled Zaffah, or Zeffa) is a ceremonial procession of folkloric musicians and entertainers leading the bride and groom into the reception area of their wedding.
Over a background trac of traditional zaffa songs, our musicians play traditional drums such as bendir or daf (frame drums), tabla (Arabic hand drum), riq (Arabic tamborine) & mizmar (horns) to create a festive atmosphere.
Our Band or DJ will play international or middle eastern music as guests arrive at the reception, then our master of ceremonies will announce the arrival of the wedding party and the Zaffa will begin.
With drums beating to the traditional Zaffa entrance music, dancers bearing Shamadans (candelabras) or trays lit with candles balanced on their heads symbolically & ceremoniously light the way of the bridal party, leading them into the reception area.
Additional dancers enter carrying sequin wrapped canes, playing finger cymbals, carrying candles and several other entertainers and musicians join in the procession.
The bride and groom enter last and come up to the dance floor, where the dancers perform a dance around the bride and groom with sequin wrapped canes . There are many beautiful poses held during the dance for the photographers to capture the special moments.
Our band "Ya Salaam" plays traditional Middle Eastern as well as international music for haflas, weddings, zaffas & private events. We can provide DJ music during our band breaks to play the music of your favorite recording artists.
After dinner or between courses, your guests will be amazed with our beautiful and very elegant traditional belly dance show artistically performed by our expert dancers.
We also lead debke lines to include the wedding guests and coordinate the bride & groom to be lifted in chairs and everyone to dance around them.
