Thanks for coming back or if this is your first time; Welcome! You have excellent timing! Today is the first of a (more or less) regular column on this blog. It's sort of your "Top 10" variety except that there won't always be 10 items. So I've decided to call it, "Every Bellydancer Should Know...". I truly believe that these little lists are good basics that will help understand bellydance, it's history, the music, and the culture just a bit better. It may even help us understand other dancers a bit better -- wouldn't that be nice?! So let's get started, we kick it off with a list of The Masters of Classic Arab Music. Please feel free to add to the topic by posting comments, questions or other thoughts.
One more thing; these videos are long so get comfy, get a cup of tea or a glass of lemonade and enjoy. If you don't have time then just do a few minutes of each. Sometimes just even a few minutes can give you a sense of where the artist is coming from.
|Just a little chart shows artist's ages, their overlap and how it is that one artist easily influenced the next.|
