Bedouin Tribal Dance (Arc Music)
This album is themed on weddings and celebrations of the Egyptian tribal Bedouins from the North Western Sahara. The ten tracks make for less than an hour of music, and the tracks do not reveal as much diversity as some of Ramzy’s other albums. This CD has strong traditional appeal, and may not be as popular with the broader base of world music fans. Still, it is an important feather in Hossam Ramzy’s cap, given his wide range of album output in categories ranging from Latin fusion to traditional bellydance.
