A man in navy blue soldiers uniform with a fez is sitting on a chair. Swivled at his hips, he is facing away from the camera. He faces an ensemble of women in bright dresses of various who are singing. Some are standing and others are sitting in front of them. At the outskirts of the group, there are a few men in shirts and waistcoats who watch them.
