Arabic Rhythms — Dancing in the Desert

We leave this week of “Everything is a Drum” class introducing on West Asian/Middle Eastern rhythms with a video of dancing in the desert. We’re not sure where this dancing is taking place — the video is called “Desert rhythm arab music arabian dance” — but now that we’ve learned some basic Arabic drum beats and are eager to know more, how can can we not dance along? Next week in class: Oceania and the Pacific Islands.
