Belly dance is for everyone.
Women like this inspire me more than anyone, even amazing dancers like RB. Women like this remind me that I can be beautiful after my 20s are long gone, that I can stay strong no matter what life throws at me, and that it’s never too late to pursue your dreams, your art, and your creativity.
So grateful to have wonderful role models of ALL ages in the belly dance community.

Absolutely love Luna of Cairo! Her gracefulness is amazing … Zay al Hawa is also one of the belly dance classics.
For those of you who don’t already know, I host a bellydance-inspired podshow called Eclectica, and it’s been a bit since we’ve had an ep. out (thanks to a cross-country move and general life nuttiness). So in celebration of my new place, my utilities being -finally- all hooked-up and functioning, and in honor of my new city & its great bellydance community, I wanted to put out a vibrant, upbeat new episode. ^_^
I’m still kinda sick from the last bout of plague that got me (so I apologize for the clurginess you may hear in my part of the show) but now that I can actually speak & be understood, I -had- to get this out. ^_^
Eclectica’s got music for all kinds of folks; whether you’re into Cabaret, Fusion, Tribal, ATS/ITS (or other styles, like Goth/Industrial & beyond). It features tunes in all kinds of styles, from alllll over the world, and occasionally, you’ll even find a bit of silliness in there too. ;) So if you’re a bellydancer, a fan of world music, or ya just want some great new tunes to groove to, come on over n’ take a listen. :D
Oh! And btw- it’s -totally- free, tons of fun, and FULL of audio pretty that’s alll on the up-and-up (meaning everything I play is either podsafe or artist permitted, w/o exception.). So drop on by, take a listen, and if you like, please feel free to pass it on, come pop a comment on one of the show’s pages, or make a request!
