"Dig deeper into this rich musical legacy"
"Being a Latin percussionist & World Music DJ, I spent over 25 years performing Australia-wide, playing many genres from Cuba, Brazil, the Caribbean, Spain & France. After living in Egypt, France, Lebanon, Syria and the Gulf in my youth, I recently returned to Egypt to study the rhythms of my ancestors, to dig deeper into this rich musical legacy. I spent time with drummers exploring traditional, tribal, classical, urban & modern rhythms from all regions. My aim is to popularise lesser-known beats without overlooking well-known & common rhythms. Keti & I produced this CD for bellydancers & drummers to get familiar with a broader range of fresh & awesome Arabic grooves."

"Explore a wider spectrum of Arabic rhythms"
"My bellydance journey began with performing to live Arabic bands & percussion in Australia in my teens. In my early 20's I was dancing & performing professionally in Cairo with both classical Raqs Sharqi & Folkloric bands, studying with Mahmoud Reda in Egypt for many years. This gave me a wonderful grounding, knowledge & appreciation for Arabic rhythms & their movement connection. In fact, the rhythmic soul of Egyptian music became the foundation for A-Z Bellydance. Sam & I share an interest in traditional & lesser known musical styles of the Arab world, so we produced this CD & furthermore, developed our Rhythmic Essence workshops for bellydancers, with an aim to explore a wider spectrum of Arabic rhythms."
