I wish there was a walk like an egyptian emoticon. I'd use it right now. But there isn't. So you'll have to use your imagination.

My kinda thread!!

My favorite Arabic music (generally speaking) are darbouka solos.

I'm sure most of you already know this, but this vid is an example of traditional Egyptian-style belly dance. This solo is performed by Veena Bidasha (perhaps one of the world's most sought-afters belly dancers) ... She and her identical twin Neena have been studying belly dance together since childhood, and do many of their performances together.

I chose this particular vid because this entire dance is a shimmy--the hallmark of the Egyptian style, which Veena executes to textbook perfection while making it look so effortless (it's not!!)...

Forgive me if this has already been posted; I will be perusing the rest of the posts later when I'm not so short on time... Enjoy this beautiful darbouka solo and dance!

I thought you'd appreciate that after you enjoyed my Rachel Bryce post of course Rachel doesn't often dance to Arabic music; and her style is more tribal fusion flavor. I can post more later if you like.

The next dance is performed by Leyla Jouvana. She's actually much older than you'd probably guess (good Ukrainian genes, perhaps?) Her dancing simultaneously embodies creativity, playfulness, energy, elegance, precision, and unbridled joy. (Honestly I'm not sure how she doesn't get dizzy during some of those traveling turns!!) She's also a great teacher, and her husband plays the darbouka though not during this particular vid obviously.

Enjoy, Mr. C!

Perhaps this is just the heterosexual in me speaking, but belly dance-- believe it or not-- is not intended to be an overtly sexual dance (as opposed to cabaret, or even hip-hop)... It is rather the oldest celebration of the female form (try watching a man attempt it lol) and was/is used extensively during childbirth to help encourage a smooth delivery. Any sexuality is more or less secondary/incidental.

I'm tempted to post Amira dancing pregnant lol
