    Amulya, finding music with no lyrics is a great idea to dance. Does any one have any ideas/suggestions??

    Cheers

    Using music without lyrics can also be sometimes tricky as many of these old classics by Farid al Atrash, Mohamed Abdel Wahab, Om Kalsoum, Warda etc. are so well known by Arab audiences that they know what the song is telling about even when you use instrumental version of them.

    Some excellent records which include instrumental versions (and where is also shortly explained what the music/song originally was about) has been made by Hossam Ramzy and Jalilah... these are excellent for any dance music library. And of course with drum solos you do not need to care about lyrics

    My drum teachers have a band, "Felahi", that plays original instrumental music. I don't know how appropriate it is for authentic Eastern styles, but it certainly works well for the local Tribal and American Cabaret dancers.

    You can sample some of their music on their website:

    Felahi - Home

    Soon there will be a CD coming out. *PLUG*
    Cool music, cool people. Check it out!

    EDIT: OK, not all of their stuff is original. But a lot of it is!
