White Rainbow - ArtletOmar Al Rashid
"White Rainbow while you and me...”
is a verse recited on a couple’s Jelwa
(pre-wedding traditional party) while
guests hold colorful, gold-embellished
pieces of fabrics over their heads.
Most guests sing along not knowing that the
Arabic song has this English opening line.
Even though white rainbows do not actually
exist, blending all of the rainbow colors would
result in white. Hence, exchanging colorful
fabrics over the couple’s heads to wish them
a happy, colorful life just like a rainbow...
