ALBAWABA - Great music, great culture. This is the Jerash Festival that opened its doors last week in Jordan's best-known ancient city. 

One of the best pictures is not of the glitzy stars, though there are a lot of these but the captivating image goes to Jordanian Senator, ex-prime minister Taher Al Masri enjoying himself to the beat of Palestinian singer Dalal Abu Amneh.

And here she is in her glory with a full orchestra:

Jarash is about culture and folklore than pure singing:
