ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This 2-CD set contains over two and a half hours of beautiful original American music with Middle Eastern influences. It is a fabulous tool for dance teachers and students alike who can refer to the CD back for a quick reference to the length and rhythm of each song. Desert Wind is famous for world beat music with jazz, classical, and progressive rock influences.

This CD set was made in response to dancer requests, and the rhythms include chiftitelli, ayoub (zaar), maqsoum, bolero, slow, medium and fast beladis, funky ayoub, masmoudi, maqsoum, khaleegy, slow and fast karsilama, saidi-swing, libi-rock, celtic jig, saidi-rock, India slow 7/4, tribal waltz, etho-rock, Mid-East funk, and Latin 6/8.

With an amazing blend of instruments and rhythms, this music is both uplifting and relaxing! Whether for dance or listening, Desert Wind's “World Dance” is work of art. This album includes a special guest appearance by violinist Doug Adams from Light Rain. It features awesome drum solos, passionate world rhythms, enchanting melodies and exquisite flute work.

CD one is exclusively instrumental in response to dancers' requests, and there are songs with moving lyrics on CD 2. This CD set is not for dancers looking exclusively for the pure Egyptian genre. Yet hundreds of modern dance and belly dance professionals have acclaimed the World Dance (2 CD Set) as a highly recommended and a “must have” addition for any music collection.

Editorial Reviews
Music Design In Review September - October, 1999
WORLD DANCE, a double CD for the price of one, contains over two and a half hours of enchanting music. It combines melodic, passionate melodies with exotic and moving rhythms, ranging from mesmerizing and hypnotic to uplifting and enticing. Instrumentation includes a unique blend of flutes, mandolins, dumbeks, tablsa, pianos, guitars, violins and more. The first CD is intrumental, while the second includes vocal tracks such as the "Om Tara Chant" and the beautiful "La Llorona." The name of each of the 32 songs is listed on the back of the CD case along with the song's corresponding world rhythm."

Lady Slipper Catalog, October, 1999
This 1999 2-for-the-price-of-1 compilation presents some of the best dance music honoring the Goddess from their 4-CD set Sarasvati, with the addition of the all-new Power Flute. (A passionate and exotic combining of ancient and modern instrumentation, it includes both instrumentals for dance as well as beautiful chants and vocals for meditation and healing.) It contains over 2.5 hours music, 32 tracks which feature various rhythms from all over the world (and they are all named on the back... read more

Zaina Hart

Unique, inspiring, best selling 2 CD set! Thank you Desert Wind!
As a Professional Performer and teacher with 25 years teaching experience and nearly 30 on stage, as well as owner/editor of an international Belly Dance Magazine, I highly recommend this CD. World Dance is one of the most unique CDs (2 CD Set) that has something for everyone. From the performer's perspective I use multiple pieces (Tabla Rocka, Mirage, Om Tara, Sarasvati, Raj Drums, Byr Demet, Lotus Dancer and Passion Drums). As a teacher - - I use the entire compilation as there are a number of specific rythms/speeds as well as moods to work with. I am predominantly an Egyptian Stylist, however, Desert Wind's World Music with serious Middle Eastern rhythms (Ayoub, Khaleegy, Karsilma, Beladi, Maqsoum) truly inspires me - reaching the dancer's soul. I can't keep this on the shelf in my studio - - my students "fans" of Desert Wind as well. Congratulations on another spectacular release (2-CD Set) Desert Wind!

Magical Music
This awesome music took me on a 100 mile road trip, and I didn't even get through it all. It was so magical and moved me through several day dreams as I drove. It is a joy to have found the music of Desert Wind!

Shahanez

Perfect for dancing
wonderful collection of music - great notations on the beat style. I plan on using this one a lot!

Beth Agnew


The music is typical Desert Wind. Cd came very quickly. I love the cut Raj Drums.

Mary

The ordering process was great. The music is FABULOUS!
I took five years of bellydancing for fun and learned to LOVE the music. I love having the music without the words since I don't speak any of the languages.

Music for a powerful, more spiritually focused relation to belly dance.
I've long been familiar with the music of Desert Wind, and in fact used a cut from this CD in my own belly dance educational DVD series (the "Power Flute" cut).
The rhythms throughout the CD are correct and clear Mediterranean rhythms and the instrumentation is full and powerful and runs a full range from almost rock-n-roll to the almost painfully etherial.

The flautist, Andalin, is just incredible. She can wring gorgeous lyrical work or hard, hot POWER work out of what is usually considered a very soft instrument --- check out their "Flute Fest" album if you like this.

The best thing about this album is how quickly my students and audiences respond to this world/crossover style.
This isn't traditional music for party style belly dance... it is more like music for a powerful, more spiritually focused relation to belly dance.
Enjoy! http://www.saqra.net/

Desert Wind: World Dance

I plan to use the art of belly dance to exercise.
Belly dancing doesn't bode well with contemporary music or 60's/70's oldies. I'm glad I found the World Dance CD's; they are perfect.
