    @Erl

    Thank you for your share of the Iranian Arabs of Ahwaz.

    May I ask you if you can find similar photos of Iranian Arabs from Southern Iran (Fars Province, Bandar Abbas, Bushehr, Khamseh etc.) and Khorasan?

    Pictures of the Arabic village Khalaf - about 150 km north-east of Birjand - and of its inhabitants.

    Ulrich Seeger The Arabic Dialect of Khorasan
    In the eastern parts of Iran, in Khorasan on the borders of Afghanistan, there has been an Arab population since the Islamic conquest up to the present day. In summer 1996, I recorded samples of this extraordinary and ancient Arabic dialect on tape.



    A report on the fieldwork, some ethnological remarks, first grammatical conclusions and transcribed texts can be found in:

    I think that hardly any Arabs know that there are very old Iranian Arab communities outside of Ahwaz and Southern Iran that still speak distinctive dialects of Arabic despite almost 1400 years having passed and despite living next to Iranians for this long. I think that most of such people have been assimilated to the general population long ago in Khorasan. I read some time ago that this was/is the case with the Arabs of Afghanistan, Caucasus and Central Asia.

    No offense @Erl but are you sure that all of those are Iranian Arabs? Some of them don't strike me as Arabs but rather other ethnic groups in Iran such as Baloch or Afro-Iranians. Some of the clothing as well. Your previous posts were more accurate IMO.

    More below:

    Oasis Unedited: Mansoojat: The Virtual Museum of #Saudi Arabia's Traditional Costumes > Featured in Oasis Magazine

    In KSA basically (traditionally at least) each region and region within the region, city, village, tribe and clan had their own traditional clothing. That equals 100's of distinctive traditional clothing. Such diversity is seen in few places in the world. Let alone Arabia as a whole and the remaining Arab world.

    Same story with traditional dances.

    This month the Janadriyah cultural heritage festival took place outside of Riyadh. It is one of the biggest of its kind in the world and visited by millions of people annually. Locals as well as foreigners.

    Some photos.

    @Sargon of Akkad

    Great pictures!

    Are you still looking to be visiting India sometime soon/in future? I remember we had a long thread about that.

    Some of the Omani traditional women dress pattern is essentially influenced by those of India, considering the Maritime legacy of Oman. as it was big player in the Indian ocean.

    Nice thread. it shows the overall diversity, and somehow similarity. it have these Eastern-Orientalism touch to it.
