A dramatic piece of expressive music designed for the sensual art form of Belly Dance.

Suitably Eastern

by Stephanie McKechnie & David P Shortland

New and original Belly Dance Music featuring a mixture of Arabic drums and zills.
NOTES
For 'Suitably Eastern', being a Bellydancer myself I have composed this music for ATS Bellydance, encompassing moderate tempo 120BPM and slow sections for all those gooey movements such as taxeem. It's all topped off with the basic zill pattern throughout the song to help those who would like drill/practice their Zilling. Enjoy!
