Dancing with Genies
The FIRST in Sands of Time ORIENTALE series: 2 complete Egyptian style cabaret shows, each just under 30 minutes. Recorded in 2006 in Cairo and mixed in the United States, these shows have been adapted for the time restraints of Western belly dance performances. The pieces will please the purist however, as they were recorded almost exclusively with traditional instruments. The album contains an extensive color booklet with translated lyrics of the songs, a discussion of Egyptian dance posture complete with muscle diagrams and a comparison of Belly Dance shows from around the Middle East and the United States.
