gorgeous sound
one of my teachers used this cd for part of a class a few weeks ago, and i knew i had to have it! gotta love that dark hurdy gurdy whine! and of course, absolutely awesome to dance to.


An awesome CD especially for belly-dancing!
If I can dance to it, I own it, that's why I own this CD, 'nuff said!


A must-have for bellydancers
It's been several months I've been waiting for a Djinn CD album and I was not disappointed by "The Middle East Side". Great for bellydancers but also for lovers of traditional eastern music blended with modern rythms.


Wow! How do you follow that?
Provides inspiration for aspiring artists, musical or otherwise. Fun to listen to and to practice dance moves to. Allows for stretching the imagination to the limit. Djinn - yeah, they are.

this is really fun
It really gets you dancing - the drumming makes me want to pick up a drum and learn how to play...

Fantastic album!
I fell in love with Djinn's music when I attended a workshop by a tribal-fusion bellydancer, and knew I had to get the album. It didn't disappoint! Every track is a wonderful fusion of Middle-Eastern and American music and perfect for tribal bellydancing. All tribal dancers should own this album.


Great music, great tribal fusion dance with it :-)
I fell in love with "Djinn" see them with great
tribal fusion dancers - so this CD is a "must have"
for me ;-)
I can say: great music and great tribal fusion dance with it!

Greetings, Shanara


Djinn has done a great job mixing mid-east and American music. They kept it earthy, too. This has the groove and funk I was looking for: down-home dance music, not synth/over-the-top tribal, I am grateful for that.


Djnn is wonderful
I purchased this Cd because I saw them on You Tube at Rakash East and I truly love their music..I will continue to be a fan..

more more!
Excellent tribal or retro (70's)belly dance music. My only gripe is that I wish it were just a tad longer! I would be so happy if some of their pieces (like Brooklyn Baladi) went on to the just over 5 minute range so I could use them by themselves in shows (not to mention then I could dance to them longer too, as they are very compelling to dance to). I love that hurdy gurdy too, even if it is in G. :-)
