Video: Libyan Flavours – Tea
Just over two months old, Libyan Flavours (“نكهات ليبية”) has established itself as “an initiative to keep the identity of Libya alive,” already garnering a strong base of some fifty-five thousand followers who regularly post photos of paintings, landscapes, meals, and snapshots from quotidian life in Libya.
The producers themselves have released two well-advertised videos over the course of twenty-four hours, which they describe as the beginning of a series meant to highlight aspects of Libyan traditions as they are carried out today. The first one, shown above, creates a bond between tea ceremonies set in three different geographic and social settings. The second video, which provides glimpses of some wedding festivities, can be viewed here.
