Album Remarks & Appraisals:

This release features bouncy and sinuous bellydance music by Emad Sayyah. He writes soft and harmonious arrangements, avoiding quarter tones, using traditional instruments as well as modern ones. His compositions have found many admirers among professional belly dancers, but beginners and non-dancers will also enjoy these exciting songs. Emad Sayyah was born in Beirut, Lebanon. He has been performing professionally for more than three decades across Kuwait, Jordan, Syria, as well as Europe. Besides using traditional oriental instruments like the derbacki, rik, kanoun, nay, and santur, Emad also utilizes modern instruments like the saxophone, oboe, clarinet, accordion, keyboards, and violin.
