About Booking Middle Eastern Entertainment
Middle Eastern music and dance is often sacred and religious in nature, and performed at a variety of events, both religious and secular. The world of modern Arabic music has been dominated by music from Cairo, Egypt, Morocco, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. Arabic music includes the use of stringed instruments like the oud, woodwind flutes and the human voice.
Belly dance is a Western name for an Arabic dance originating in the Middle East. Western audiences often refer to it simply as "Middle Eastern Dance". The American Tribal Style Belly Dance represents everything from folk-inspired dances to the combination of ancient dance from North India, the Middle East, and parts of Africa.
