Drum solos are my favorite in bellydance. Even though veils are beautiful. I have a particular interest towardsdancing according to the drum beat. As years go by, i find many dancers dancing lesser to the music. Even though they do not have to “mickey mouse” to the beats of the music, i guess that they understand the music alot lesser than ancient art forms.
In bellydance, following the music and understanding it is one of the core parts. Different drum beats have different types of movement. There is no rule that you have to shimmy to a fast drum. You can always be creative! What i mean is, understanding that movement and getting involved in the music
Whether its drums or other instruments, bellydance really requires knwoledge in msuic. That doesnt mean all the dancers are musicians but they work very closel with msucians.
