In the comment section below, give as many bellydance terms, phrases, concepts, names ideas that begin with the letters M & N.

Onto this week's letters M & N, I'll get it started:

M is for:
Maksoum is an Egyptian rhythm. Watch this GREAT tutorial on the Maksoum/Maqsum Rhythm.

N is for:
Ney/Nay is a wind instrument is commonly heard in Middle Eastern music.

Here is a wonderful example of Nay being played by Reda Bedair.

Ok those are my entries, what are your bellydance M's and N's? Let's hear 'em!


  1. M is for...

    Mira Betz! I adore her. I learned so much and was so inspired when I took the "Mira Mania" workshops at Plaza de Anaya last year.

    Mardi Love, part of The Indigo.

    N is for...

    Niyaz, one of my favorite Middle Eastern bands.

  2. Melaya Leff, a flirtatious folkloric dance using a scarf-like garment as a prop.

    Nebtidi Mnain El Hikaya, the song I danced to for my first solo!
