Zaffa is a wedding procession filled with music and dance and can include elaborate costumes as well. It's a custom with a long history in Arabic cultures and the tradition continues today. In Southern California, performance groups are hired to lead the zaffa at weddings. Director Kristin Lydsdottir brings viewers into an intercultural wedding where the zaffa is used to celebrate the union.
