In the Arabian tradition, Hakawati is a master storyteller, a genius raconteur, who will tell stories to everybody, if they want to listen. His function in the Arab culture was of paramount importance: he attracted masses, who very thirsty for new tales and strange stories. The true Hakawati are long gone.
