ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"The Movements" is ANIMUS' latest release. This CD probably best fits in the world fusion and belly dance music genres. This CD is a little more geared towards dancers with less odd time signatures/complex rhythms then "Mediterranean Dreams". This CD also has a stronger Middle Eastern fusion sound. It mainly blends Traditional Middle Eastern & Greek sounds and influences with some Electronic and Rock sounds as well as a little Latin, African and Aboriginal Didgeredoo too... ENJOY!
