Shisha, goza, hookah, narghile, hubble-bubble or waterpipe are all synonymous to the tobacco smoking method used for many centuries by people in the Middle Eastern and Asian subcontinent. The Arabic water-pipe in which fruit-scented tobacco is burnt using coal, passed through an ornate water vessel and inhaled through a hose. Most people enjoy to partake in the shisha experience because it offers surreal calm and is a peaceful pursuit which is conducive to close interaction with others. When smoking a hookah, people tend to sit in a circle which is a symbol of unity and friendship.
There has been a recent revival of this centuries-old practice in modern culture. With the globalisation, society has become increasingly multicultural and the traditional practice of smoking shisha is an epitome of this cultural fusion.
The 1990’s saw the revival of centuries old shisha smoking practice in the western society which mainly coincided with the introduction of sweetened tobacco, commonly known as molasses or Ma’ssel. The relaxed and peaceful nature of the shisha phenomenon contrasted strongly to the quick-paced and stressful lifestyle represented by cigarettes. It became a pleasurable pastime enjoyed by many.
Shisha smoking venues first started appearing in England along the Edgware Road in the 70s, largely fuelled by the Gulf Arab expat community. Today, hookah is reaching a wider audience and gaining popularity across the UK. For example, typically when one thinks of shisha, the immediate association that springs to mind is Edgware Road. However, despite the indoor smoking ban in England, new shisha bars (mainly with outside seating areas) are springing up in new locations such as Knightsbridge. The act of smoking shisha, which is most commonly reserved for specific ethnic groups, is gaining popularity with other cultures and is a stepping stone to greater cultural integrity and unity. In a BBC news article entitled ‘Pipe Dream’, it is reported that ‘shisha is crossing the historic racial divide in the town between Asians […] and whites.’ The article makes an important observation that “If you look at the impact of taking the shisha out of this culture, you’re talking about disrupting and destroying the whole pattern of community activity.”
If you have not tried shisha before, it is helpful to draw to the words of the interviewee in the above news article:
“But it’s almost the equivalent of being on your own and getting into a lovely fragrant bubble bath.”
