The other day I was at the mall and my son dragged me into FYE (music store) and in the "World" section, I found a CD I love! It's called "Exotic Oriental Belly Dancing" with L'Orchestre de Danse Orientale. I'm still a beginner, but I love this one!

I JUST asked my girlfriend this exact question because my RAKS playlist on my iPod was getting overplayed (understatement) as I've been...ahem..."dancing in my head" while commuting (for lack of better words). At any rate, this is what she suggested to me. I haven't listened to any of it yet but she knows I'm a "club/house" chick and I think some of these reflect that taste. If anyone else has heard any of these I'd love your opinions!

Tarkan's White album
Hakim's Talakik
Hossam Ramzy7's Sabla Tolo (for drum solos)
Bodyshock (think this and the next two are pop/mixed CDs)
Beirut Underground
Bombay Beats

For Egyptian:
1. Amani and the Badawist (Bassem Yazbek) -- 3 volumes of Raqs Sharqi music (the so-called red, blue, and gold albums)
2. Jalilah's Raqs Sharqi series. Last one, Lebanese music is FAB! The first one, Amar 14 is great.
3. Bellydance Superstars volume 1 and 2 (the others are all pop music)
4. Beata and Horacio Cifuentes "Oriental Fantasy" Cds. All good.


For old-school American Cabaret, try Eddie Kochak (he has like 12 CDs - they're all good)

For Turkish oriental, anything with "Oyoun Havalari" in the title or description is usually pretty good. Some of the Arc Records CDs for Turkey are good; some are weird. For Romani music, I can't guide you because everything I have is either from instructor compilations or CDS brought back from Turkey with no way to get them here.

I also like Hossam Ramzy sometimes (he's an acquired taste) and I like it when Tribal dancers dance to his music.

I recommend Hollywood Music Center and Maqam.com online for buying/trying cds.

Depends on what you are looking for...if you have access to a Border's Bookstore, go check out their World Music section. You can preview most of the CDs. I have all of the Desert Rose and Bellydance Superstars CDs, but I also have a bunch of others. If you do any ATS, you will want the CDs from Fat Chance bellydance. :-)

I would love some recommendations for good cds for belly dancing! Both ones I could practice drills with and ones I could make up routines with.
