As well as being the founder of Amera’s Palace, Amera Eid also had a glittering career as a professional belly dancer, travelling extensively throughout the Middle East.
Wahyatak Habibi and Asal are the product of that experience – CDs designed especially for belly dance performance, providing a ready-made compilation of Amera’s favourite music from which to build a performance set.
Wahyatak Habibi includes a Majensi specially written for Amera, and Fifi Abdou’s famous Shisha Song as well as pieces suitable for Tarab, Saiidi, Khaleegy, Shaabi, impro and drum solo.
Asal means “Honey” and is a well known complimentary phrasing for women in Egypt who ooze that quality! The CD takes its name from the second track, Zay El Asal ( You are like Honey), an emotional Tarab piece. The CD includes a Majensi, as well as Khaleegy, Eskanderani, Shaabi, Saiidi and drum solo numbers.
Al Ra’Kasa We Tabbal is a CD of amazing Drum Solos, some of the most popular in the world of Oriental dance, recorded live by Tablah virtuoso Jamal Zraika. Originally released in 200, this is the re-released version with two bonus tracks.
