Namira plays mainly rhythmic Arabic folk music. Namira is a society of oriental music and dance. It was founded 2001 in Turku and they have been performing ever since, for example at Kaustinen Folk Music Festival and at the Oriental Dance festival of Finland. In 2003 they prepared a show for children, called Rytmiretki and it was performed in Turku's kindergartens and in NNKY's day care centers. In the same year they also produced an Oriental dance tale "Aicha-myllärintytär" in cooperation with City of Turku Cultural Services and Studio Afifa.
