Note: Alan Lomax describes the scene as the relatives and well-wishers welcome the bridal party. The ‘white sheet’ worn by the women is probably the haik, a traditional women’s garment which consists of a large piece of cloth wrapped around the body to serve as both robe and, when drawn over the face, a veil which fulfills the Islamic mandate for hijab (covering).
