The Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi Whirling Dervishes of Damascus

This is pretty damn cool.
The Whirling Dervishes are a Muslim Sufi order who are known for their famous practice of performing their dhikr (remembrance of Allah) in the form of a whirling "dance" and musical ceremony called the sema. The Sema represents a mystical journey of man's spiritual ascent to God.
