The belly dance causes frenzy and disturbance. To the primitive it was not just sensation and pleasure but life, and unity with nature. In Vegno (sic), Africa it means fertility and the dance boils to ecstatic moments. There are other styles and meanings in Africa: from Loango to Zanzibar. The Sheik’s Men many of the songs are traditional, familiar (The Song The Belly Dancer you may recognise as the Song of India.) There are new songs, authentic songs.
