Musical instruments and a little history

D you know your nay from a quanoon???  Go here to learn (and listen) about the most commonly used musical instruments in Middle Eastern Music.

An overview of bellydance since 1900.  Pay special attention to Nawga Foud, Samia Gamal, Souheir Zaki, Dina (not specifically named but in a video clip) and Randa in the Golden Era and Egyptian section. 

The term "Tribal Dance" means many different things to many different people.  This film talks to some of the "names" in the movement and asks them to define what their dance is and how it is different from other middle eastern dance.
