Kay’s current recommendations:
Prime Cuts CD’s
There are currently 2 in this series put together and edited by Sara Farouk and Emad el Rashid. Prime Cuts 1 focusses on the music of Oum Kalthoum – and is the original music cut for dancers – so of a reasonable length and with a translation.
Prime Cuts 2
The music of Abdul Halim Hafiz - with my personal favourite ‘Mawood’. Both are available from : www.faridadance.com/bellydance-music-and-dvds/music.html
A great site with Arabic translations of songs.
UK Magazine & Dance Organisation: www.nada.uk.com
