    I've just recently been through the same mision, and performed it last weekend! I'm not a big fan of the sound of the Sami Nossair orchestra version as it's a big tinny, but it's on the 'beyond the dessert: classical Egyptian bellydance" CD.

    My preferred version is George Al Rassy (sometimes spelled El Rassi or variations thereof) on his Jay Te'tezer album. He has an instrumental version of about 4 minutes, and a sung version of about 9 minutes! As neither were quite what I was looking for, I mixed the two of them together and put a short drum solo on the end to create I a 6 minute masterpiece! I'm hoping to youtube it as soon as i get a copy of the video.

    Both albums are available to download from iTunes (I recommend both of them, even if the Sami Nossair one is a bit tinny imho, and the George al Rassy album is a great album too!)

    It's a difficult song to find a 'perfect' danceable version, so would be intrigued to hear what you come up with! I absolutely adore the song!
