Music for Belly Dance

 Hi Everyone,

As a musician that often performs with or for belly dancers, I thought I'd post to the belly dance video community to see what people are listening to and what they prefer music-wise.

Of course there are a number of divergent styles of belly dance and quite a lot of different musical tastes out there. But I ask because though my current project Azphodel has focused on Tribal Fusion (somewhat), I aim to take that project in a different direction but will continue to delve deeper into the tribal fusion and world fusion dance movements with other projects.

Also, as a player of several traditional Near Eastern instruments (mainly Turkish yaylı tanbur and Turkish mey), a lot of my focus currently is on instrument technique and Turkish art and folk music. I also play a selection of Arabic, Bulgarian, Greek and other music other than Turkish. Any dancers out there that love the traditional (or a fresh new take on traditional) stuff that have input, please chime in!!

Thanks everyone,

~Zane Lazos

This is old but worth repeating:

my first bellydance performance

Sorry it's so blurry, it was recorded on a cheap camera, but it's all we had.

The dance was for the talent show at the high school where i teach. you can hear my students cheering, which is super cute. choreography by sharon kihara and me : )
