(No post last Sunday because I was out of town with my sweetie.)
- Dabkie: Exotic Dances of the Middle East, The Derbeki Ensemble (1963?)
- Dahlena’s Middle Eastern Music For Belly Dancing Vol. 2, musicians uncredited (1978)
- Belly Dance! Music for an oriental dance vol. 2, musicians uncredited (1973)
Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon to have the musicians go uncredited. Lousy for you, because it means you can’t go looking for them if you really like they way they sound. Lousy for them, because artists should always get credit for their work, even if it’s work-for-hire.
Also… what was wrong with people in the ’70s? Srsly… all the orange… ugh.
I really like her as a belly dancer but she shows what not to do when dancing with your snake. She flings it around like it’s just a prop and not a living being. She is also getting very close to people who she has no idea how they are going to react to the snake. It makes me very sad.
Showed up to a party with friends after a night of gigging and was asked to fill in for the no-show dancer. Just another night in the life of a belly dancer.
