With a rich oral tradition, in Damascus there was always the storyteller (Hakawati), who narrate the stories and legends of the ancestors. Today there is only one, Abu Shady, exhibiting his art some evenings in the crowded coffee An-Nanfura (behind the Great Mosque). Although not understand Arabic, and let go by the lead performances, shouting and beating with a stick of this kind sir, that will transport you to scenes of The Thousand and One Nights, while drinking tea and smoking a hookah.
