    Does anyone else like Middle Eastern music? I practically only listen to Iranian and Turkish music, with some Arabic too. It's just so much more mystic and even provocative! And the dancing to it is much better!

    Iranian - Black Cats, Afshin and Arash are my favourite Iranian artists, though I like Marzieh, Soosan and Leila Forouhar too.

    Turkish - Tarkan (of course!), Mustafa Sandal and Doğuş are my favourite

    Arabic - Amr Diab and Elissa

    I love Mustafa Sandal's new album 'Isyankar.' The English song on it is also canny good.

    Not overly impressed with Kamran and Hooman's new album though.

    This is a GREAT site for buying and listening to samples of, Iranian (including Kurdish and some Azari,) Arabic, Turkish, Greek and Armenian music.

    Cool! Lebanon probably produces the best Belly Dancers and singers in the Arab world!

    But Iranian Bandari style music (from Khuzestan province in the south west near Iraq) is best for shoulder shaking !

    Thats KURDISTAN!! (Western iran is kurdistan) Any music where you suddenly have an urge to shake your shoulders is for sure kurdish, lol :p:

    Nancy ajram rocks!!! lol and definitely (as northumbrium says when u close the curtains and do some good ol' fashion belly dancing-woah u can work up a sweat lol ) for dancing!

    Kamran and hooman (as seen on PMC!!lol) song called "seniorita" is cool, but thats about it. Don't really like turkish music, it sounds like military music to me, too harsh! (or maybe thats partly due to my opinion of the government :rolleyes: not sure)

    The old arabic artists are the best by far...FAIRUZ, farid al atrache, mohammed abdel wahab...wow they have amazing voices. :eek:

    Kurdish: the 1950's singer semal sayib is excellent, especially if you knew what he was saying ...you can hear this at http://www.ekurd.net/Music-Box/Default.asp

    and ZAKARIA....very good!! www.zakariamusic.com (you can see the videos too :p: )

    And oh my god, the kurdish singer "ismail kamandi" is amazing, he sings like a sufi, its mesmerising (hes from the iranian part of kurdistan)

    and theres also "chopy" she's good too, she sings in kurdish and english... :cool: www.chopy.net
