Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Big selection of many of the rhythms you will encounter as a belly dancer. I am fairly new to belly dance, and this collection is helping me learn the underlying counts for each rhythm, the distinctive pattern of "doom" and "tek" for each, typical flourishes, and some examples of the rhythms with the music. The audio quality on the "with the music" samples is not too great, but the percussion tracks are quite good, and they are the real point of this cd. Excellent as a dance practice/drill accompaniment. My belly dance teacher recommended it, and I do too, especially if the music or the dancing is new to you.
