    I like Bellydance Superstars and Desert Roses. My favourite song is "Khalleouni, Khalleouni" by Latifa in DR. I haven't got all CD's, though, just vols. 4 of both collections. I also like DJ Mosavo, which plays for the Luscious DVD. I have another CD with music chosen by the belly twins, Neena and Veena. It's called Belly Dance Fantasy. It's the one they advert in their website, where they're wearing blue skirts, bras and veils.

    Hi Osman,
    We don't send music for free to people. On this forum we urge people to buy the music themself to support the musicians. Also, asking for "hot pictures" is not appropriate, sorry. This is a serious discussion forum.

    Hmmmmmm, osman seems to be a one-post wonder. I'll delete his reply; if he offends again, he'll feel the Ban Sword.

    Vowels and some consonants in Arabic don’t translate into English exactly. Arabic is pronounced slightly differently from country to country and English and Arabic don’t have the exact same sound qualities. Q, K, SH, are often interchanged and vowels are switched a lot. Artist names and song titles spelling will vary when translated. Sometimes there are even different names for the same folk song altogether!

    One big issue with belly dance music is that some of the same songs get played by several different cultures/countries. It may be the same song, but a Turkish version of an Egyptian song will sound different from when an American band or an Egyptian band plays it. It can get a little hairy, especially when people from different countries lay "claim" to the same tune. The best thing to do is to pick albums arranged for the famous Egyptian dancers or produced by Egyptian belly dancers. Hard copies are usually nicer and you get the liner notes.



    Check the sections that specify Egyptian music:
    Hollywood Music Center
    https://www.dahlal.com/default.aspx?n=1&c=2&s1=0&s2=0
    Belly Dance Music, Belly Dance CDs, Belly Dance MP3s, Buy Belly Dance Music
    Amazon.com has some stuff, but it's not well organized
    itunes

    Good Egyptian Albums:
    Belly Dance Classics with Fifi Abdo
    Belly Dance with Dina
    Belly Dance Time
    Bint el Balad with Fifi Abdo
    Beyond the Desert- Classical Egyptian Belly Dance
    Cairo Delight
    Cairo Plus
    Cry to the Moon
    Dancing with Genies
    Drum Circle (Movses Pannosian)
    The Essence of Belly Dance
    Golden Days Enchanting Nights
    Jalilah's Raks Sharki series 1-6
    Master of Egyptian Belly Dance
    Millennium- Music for Belly Dance
    Melodies from Cairo
    Nourhan Sharif Raqs Sharqui series
    On Fire! The Hottest Belly Dance CD ever
    Princess of Cairo
    Pulse of the Sphinx
    Samasem Dreams

    Default I think that the answer depends on what you really want to do with dance

    First, you need to explore more songs than the famous or popular ones. Those are good to get a good grasp on styles and on regional differences in music, but they cannot give you the depth of each musical tradition, nor the insights in creating your own style.

    Second, apart from the popular songs, there big, classical works in the mediterranean which are bellydanceable, but they are not commercial, i.e. are not common in cabarets, on TV, in bellydance workshops.

    third, given the popularity of egyptian style (actually egyptian cabaret style) the latest years, all discussion on good turkish and greek music, plus the gypsy traditions of middle east, egypt, greece, turkey and the balkans, has been eliminated to a bunch of dedicated people who work on those styles despite the non-commercial character.

    fourth, depending on what you think of what is tribal, the bands proposed are awesome (i would add the Americanistan and 3spell, i think i did not see them in the list). However, many artists in the mediterranean work on music styles which are similar (modern, under mediterranean influences) but they have not the recognition as tribal, because those artists live and create within their own culture.

    The difficulty on how to organise your search is normal, in the sense that i needed some years to find music i knew it existed (and i can handle greek and turkish languages which make it easier). That means, you need to spend plenty of time to search on your own apart our own recommendations. Moreover, for most mediterranean songs, there are many versions and you will need to listen to as many as you can to understand which you like most or which fit best your dancing style.

    So, really, what you want to do with dance?

Here are some categories we can start off with (we can add categories as necessary, as well as CD recommendations):

    Beginner basics

    Egyptian/Arabic (including all subcategories)

    Turkish

    ATS/ITS

    American Oriental (if I get any of these categories wrong, please feel free to correct me)
    I'm also including the following category, since we have several dancers here who practice styles that aren't traditional bellydance:

    Tribal fusion (including Goth, steampunk, etc.)

    ************************************************** ***************

    I have a couple of recommendations for basic beginner CD's:

    http://www.amazon.com/Nourhan-Sharif-Rhythms-Eitneen-Lebanon/dp/B00078X1O2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1297052345&sr=1-2

    Here is another good one for the beginner bellydancer:

    Amazon.com: 10 Songs Every Bellydancer Should Know: Various Artists: MP3 Downloads---this one includes familiar ones such as "Habibi Ya Eyni," "Alf Leyla," "Shik Shak Shok," "Aziza," and "Enta Omri."

    and here's one my previous bellydance teacher used/uses:

    Amazon.com: Bellydancing for Fortune & Fame: The Mogador Band: Music

    I have this one in the Turkish category:

    Huseyin & Gunay Turkmenler - Turkish Bellydance CD Album

    For ATS, I love anything by Solace; here's a good example:

    Solace Ahsas Belly Dance Music CD - At DancingRahana.com

    For Tribal fusion and it's variations, I'm fond of Maduro, Pentaphobe, and Beats Antique:

    Maduro - Shimmer Sustain CD Album

    Pentaphobe - Tribal Metamorphosis CD Album

    Beats Antique - Tribal Derivations CD Album
    Thank you for your post. It's very useful for a newbie like me.
