Hidarib women in Sawa, Eritrea.

The Sawa Festival is huge in Eritrea. These Hidarib women sit and wait for their performance to take way while other traditional performances are occurring. They are usually seen in very colorful clothing that cover their heads and faces because of their Islamic origin. This stance is a common one within the Eritrean people.
