Classical Egyptian Dance

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
A recent album from the guru of Egyptian (and world) percussion, Hossam Ramzy. This album sticks pretty tightly to Egyptian classical sounds, without so much of the straying that is his wont.

While Ramzy has dozens of albums out there to choose from, each one has a slightly different flavor. This one has a pretty clear focus, and sticks to it quite well.
