Traditional music for traditional dance
rakkasah | Courtenay, B.C., Canada | 12/30/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Both instruments and musical style are perfect for re-creation of traditional-style Moroccan dances. No piece is shorter than four minutes, and the longest is ten minutes (ideal for "village" scenes). I'm fond of "Amul Koutchi" (Dear rag and bone man, please lets take everything and leave here), and the greeting dance also has a nice lilt to it. This is not the usual orchestra-with-big-drum-solo stereotype; those who explore dance ought to try this one."
Great collection of Middle Eastern dance music

"If you are interested in Middle Eastern dance, this is a great CD. For one thing, the cuts range from about 6 minutes long to almost 11 minutes long, plenty of music for continuous dancing. The music features a lot of violin and is softer-sounding than a lot of Middle Eastern music you might be familiar with. The mysterious The Bride "Look at me!" is very much like what you might hear in a Moroccan restaurant, intricate rhythm, violin and is the dance wedding guests all do to fete the newly-married couple."
