The first day of the wedding lasts from noon til after the evening meal. Then around midnight the musicians play a distinctive rhythm associated with the henna celebration. People from the family of the groom paint the groom’s head, hands and feet with henna Then the musicians accompany the groom’s family who take henna to the house of the bride. The women, clapping and ullulating (kel), go into the bride’s room. The designated person, often the wife or mother of the barber, covers the bride’s head, hands and feet with henna, and everyone else asks for some in their hands. This is the night before the bride goes to the groom’s house.
