The love of music that runs in the blood of Arabs is a unifying factor, which binds them as a nation. In a typical Dhofari folklore presentation, the music is enlivening with the performances of drummers, bagpipers and conch blowers. The male dancers wield swords and impressively take steps as girls sashay and make evocative gestures by waiving their palms. Al Raboba music and dance unleash energy as men dance with flashing swords while the bagpiper and conch blower set the musical rhythm which exude vitality.

Song and dance evoke the natural response to such a spirit-filled season when mountains, meadows and streams are attired in their colorful best to thrill people with scenic beauty.
I remember that in our last visit to Salalah we meet an Omani family in one of the wadi , they welcomed us with there traditional dances ... it was amusing, and i really enjoyed it , they are very kind people. Some times you will see people from my county (UAE) joining them in there dances , even though there is a slight different but at the end every one is having fun!
Salalah has a large friendly muslim population. They mostly greet with people with traditional way " Assalam Alai Kum" which means "peace be upon you" The traditional response is wa alaikum assalam, which means "and on you be peace too.
Most of the population live in the hills and mountains and rarely come to the city. Omanis are caring people and will be very friendly and ready for help.
Females need to wear a top with longish-sleeves, and a headscarf when entering the tomb. You can borrow a headscarf there, if you don't have one.
