(4 out of 5 stars)

"If you are a Middle Eastern dancer or drummer and want to something more traditional without a lot of synthesizers and organs this is great. The drumming is wonderful."
Long songs, consistent rhythm very useful

"This CD ends up being one of the most used CDs in my collection as I use it to teach beginning students to dance. It has long pieces of music, with steady consistent rhythms throughout the music. This quality makes it excellent for teaching beginning students to dance, as they are not ready for swoops, dips, and fast switches in tempo that most Middle Eastern music contains which more experienced dancers grow to love. For someone searching for an ethnic sound, with authentic instrumentation, this is also an excellent CD. Also the long tracks might be monotonous for solo performances, but it could serve a troupe quite well. It would be particularly of benefit for those who are members of the Society for Creative Anachronism, as am I, who are searching for an authentic sound. The songs are certainly not boring, but are quite fun to dance to. A bonus is the first song, a short 2 ½" minute, predominately flute piece that different from all the other pieces on the CD, which is nice to finish stretching out and warming up to. While the songs are long by Western standards, the rhythm generally monotonous, this can often be of great benefit for certain situations, and all the songs are certainly enjoyable. I certainly highly recommend it (as I do all of Hosam Ramsey's music that I've heard), particularly for beginning dancers."
Baladi Plus - a must for fans of belly dancing
Mrs. C. Bisset | UK | 05/28/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This album sizzles with sexy beats from the master. This is a must for both performers and listeners if you adore the rhythmic drumming from north african traditions. Although slightly repetative, this CD is a much welcomed relief from the more subtle 'floaty' and unpunctuated belly dancing musical offerings."
