I do not usually do percussion parts, but wanted to create a bellydance song and could not find a rhythm track to suit. Starting with a simple Egyptian pattern which was looped to provide the entrainment base I added four Doumbec and two Riq parts. In addition to the Middle Eastern, one may also notice elements of Flamenco, Jazz, and a particularly strong North Indian influence in this piece. The full jam was over 12 min, but had to cut a bit and convert to 192, due to file size limitations. If this works for you in any way feel free to chop and sample as you like. Personally, I keep imagining a Beyonce or Rihanna type vocal working with this, assuming the right cut and bass part. - Mental update: Shakira all the way -- Now, waiting for my new Oud strings to arrive. :) -M

frenziefrenzie Your mind is so analytical and you know your theories,did you go to music school? an impressive piece of rhythmic work here Mido! Sounds great! Nice recording and mixing as well :) and I can see the belly dancers moving on this one! ;)

Thank you frenzie. Do not plan my parts beforehand - just try to fall into a sort of trance and allow my subconscious to do the work - would be very difficult to plan all this out. Yes, I trained much in my youth, so can technically analyze what has been created after the fact - though, I am often surprised, myself. Oh, by the way, have synced to bellydance video and it fits very well - cool :)
