I initially bought this album as something cheap to practice my bellydance steps to. Having said that, this turned out to a good compilation suggesting lots of freedance moves, aswell as the option to practice technique. The artists are famous, and professional dancers have based choreography around their work.
The music often has layered tones...drum for earthy grounded steps with lighter drum, flute or other instruments providing scope for fluid arms, spine and hip circles. Other tracks suggest egyptian walk, veils, shimmy or on the toes work. Having said this, what most tracks have in common is a hypnotic and exciting middle eastern feel to them - you just have to join in. A couple even mimick the noise of a clapping audience as you perform...even if it's just in your own living room or dance workshop.

As an amateur musician I'm always on the lookout for inspirational rhythms and beats, but to be honest, I was in two minds about giving this CD a try. However, my misgivings were completely unfounded! This CD is absolutely great. All the musicians featured on these tracks are professionals and the wide range of rhythms and beats is enough to satisfy any mood, be it upbeat dance rhythms or slow, hypnotic, retroflective desert beats, so Go On! Kick off your shoes and get dancing! Great stuff!

A good variation of music to add to my growing collection and a bargain price too.

This was one of the first CDs I bought when I started bellydancing, as it's one of the ones that comes near the top of searches for bellydance music. It's OK. It does the job if you want something to practise to. But it's fairly uninspiring, really. A lot of the tracks have a rather plodding, lifeless feel compared to other recordings of the same pieces.

There are much better compilations of bellydance music out there ideal for beginners - the 'Rough Guide' series are quite good, and there are also many recordings available by Egyptian orchestras (e.g. Cairo Orchestra & Sami Nossair Orchestra). Arabic music is full of variety and passion and can be absolutely wonderful, and I disagree with the previous commenter who said "the music was a bit 'samey' but then that is the type of music". It's not the type of music that's 'samey' - it's just this CD...

THE CD WAS GOOD BUT I DID NOT RECOGNISE ANY OF THE TUNES ON IT AND WOULD HAVE PREFERRED SOMETHING A BIT MORE CONTEMPORARY

I am really pleased with my purchase of this CD and would recommend it to anyone interested in bellydance. Lots of variety for anyone who likes this type of music and also good for performance pieces.

The CD was Ok for Belly Dancing practice, the music was a bit 'samey' but then that is the type of music. Just need to perfect my routine and this CD is great for that.

A good DVD. Would have liked a bit more ooomph to the music but they're the experts, not me! Really did enjoy it though, listen to it often.
