What's your favorite kind of middle eastern music, artist, or song?

I LOVE all kinds of Middle-Eastern music: Arabic, Persian, Turkish. I enjoy some pop, but prefer classical Middle Eastern music. The great Om Kalthoum is my all-time favorite Arabic singer! And my favorite instrument is the oud.

Do you play a musical instrument or sing (definitely not required for joining, but great to know)

I played the darbouka and congo drum many years ago. As I child, I studied classical piano, recorder and autoharp.

Introduction

Salaam, I'm Farah and I love Middle Eastern dance and music. I have studied a variety of dance styles including Classical Egyptian, Shaabi, Saadi, Morocccan, Turkish, Tunisian, etc. For fun, I dance in a Me dance troupe & study Arabic in SF.
