Many have asked about class music. Right now in beginning classes, we're using Saad's "Bell Arabi." (Saad is not Hakim!) Veil dancers are working with one of my favorite tracks, "Land of the Blessed" by Ali Jihad Racy. The Farid Al-Atrash piece is harder to find. There is a video of Saad in a previous blog post, which I shot in Cairo in 2007.
