and welcome to the Dahab
Holiday Dance Festival 2017 in the Algarve, Al-Gharb
- the West, as the Moors called this area.
We travel to the scenic most impressive part, the "rock
Algarve", a 20-50 m high cliff coast with countless
caves and picturesque rock formations, interrupted by
sandy beaches and coves.
The "Algarvios" distinguish
a quiet, old-fashioned courtesy, as well as a warm-hearted
hospitality. They saw ships coming and going, cosmopolitanism
and openness reach far back into the past. Here as in
Lisbon the emotion deep Fado is loved, a music full
of "saudade", full of gentle melancholy.
