When I first started belly dancing when I was 13 (more years in the past than I care to admit to), this was the music my teacher used in class. While I love this CD for the nostalgia, it is also a timeless classic with beautiful traditional Middle Eastern music that is very easy to dance to. Students will find the shorter pieces fun and, because of the clear rhythms, easy to learn fingers cymbals to. Experienced dancers can use the longer pieces for a whole routine. All in all, a well-rounded belly dance CD, with something for everyone.

this CD contains the most popular belly dancing music tunes that have become classics. It is most enjoyable for listening as well as for dancing. Great entertaining music for a typically Middle Eastern mood. I highly recommend it for all who appreciate multicultural music.

This is a classic CD that you use for everything from performances to parties to filler music at dance recitals. I am buying it because my puppy chewed up my old one. Can't live without it! And of course, there is that wonderful picture of Julianna on the cover.

I had this years ago as an LP. Recently got the CD - the music is still gorgeous but the recording (on CD) sounds like it was recorded in a tunnel (which is why I'm rating it as 3 stars instead of 5)

If you want a CD that wants to make you move, this is it. Take off your shoes, put on your toe rings, and dance, dance, dance.

I had this recording back in the '70s when I first took belly dancing. It's what I learned the basic steps and zills to. It is bar none the best recording of Middle Eastern music to learn belly dancing to. The music is addictive and has clear and easy beats to dance to. Plus there are zills playing on many songs that can guide the learning zill player if you wish. I gave away all my records and turn table 10 years ago thinking I could replace my absolute favorites with CDs. OH no! At that time I couldn't find this recording as it was presented on this album which is what I really wanted. I was heart broken. Imagine my thrill when I found out someone had made a CD of the album! And as proof positive to it's quality, it's on the Smithsonians Folkways lable. What more do you need? Get it!

I first got this album as a record (which I still have) in the early 1970s, and while it isn't all great, enough of it is that I haven't found any better middle eastern music albums since then, and I was thrilled to find it both still exists and has been made into a CD. I am still dancing two of the dances I created then to the same wonderful songs.

This cd is perfect for the sophisticated listener of Arabic music. I don't think someone will like this if they are not familiar with Arabic music because it has a lot of folklore music. I love Raks Mustafa, that song is old and a classic and George Abdo does it best. Look on youtube and see how many versions there are!!!!

Maybe because I'm just starting out in belly-dancing, I find that although the long pieces are nice to listen to, I can't really visualise dancing to them, unlike the way I do with the shorter, more rhythmic pieces.
