“Ya Bahaia 2: Bellydance Training Companion” was conceived by Bahaia herself with serious dancers in mind. Due to the overwhelming success of her first CD, “Ya Bahaia”, featuring music by Samer Issa, Bahaia was constantly fielding requests from dancers worldwide to use her music on the stahe and in the classroom. The songs on “Ya Bahaia” offer something for everyone, from orchestrated arrangements of contemporary Arabic pop, classical songs, drum solos, original compositions and traditional Egyptian folkloric pieces, while “Ya Bahaia Vol. 2” contains looped segments of the same tracks suitable for everything from classroom drills to solo rehearsals. If you enjoyed the music on Cheeky Girls Productions DVD’s “ 1-2-3 Drum Solo” and “Combin-ography” with Bahaia and the popular series “Combination Nation”, you will love practicing along to these exciting tracks. Featuring both lyrical and rhythmic practice segments set at a range of tempos, “Ya Bahaia Vol. 2” features commonly used Arabic rhythms like Malfouf, Saidi, and Maqsum and Masmoudi Kabir and is a must-have reference for belly dancers of all levels.
