Vinyl of the Day: Bellydance Music!

It’s Friday and for fun our Vinyl of the Day is Bellydance music. If you are not familiar with Bellydance music I recommend working it into your listening rotation. I recently became interested in Bellydance music based on a recommendation from a fellow vinyl collector and have since obtained some delightful Bellydance LPs. Bellydance music is soothing, uplifting, and of course, exotic. It is great background music and perfect for intimate settings. This is a fascinating genre to explore if you are looking to expand your music spectrum.

There are many different types of Bellydance music primarily based on geographic region: Egyptian, Turkish, Indian, Arabian, Syrian, and Lebanese amongst others. Bellydance has also been modernized incorporating synthesizers and electric instruments with subgenres of Fast Bellydance and Disco Bellydance music. Some traditional Bellydance music artists are Eddie Mekjian, Artie Barsamian, George Abdo, and Hani Mehanna; with more modern artists Aboud Abdel and Emad Sayyad.
