MAZARI DESCRIPTION

Mazari dance, that is in the north, in Mazar-e-Sharif. In Loghar, for example, Loghari or Qata Ghani are danced. Though these dances are really now danced in the whole of the north. These are all also dances that are nice to watch. In Afghanistan, these dances are danced by women only. I think women can dance those dances much better than men dance with the very fine, small figures. There are also some men that can do those movements very well, but I would say that the majority of women can do a lot better than men. It is more of a women's movement.
