John Bilezikjian - A Thousand and One Nights ~ Belly Dance Music CD
Belly dance and traditional Anatolian classics with master oudist John Bilezikjian.
This album was recorded in February of 1976 in Van Nuys, California. The music on tracks 3, 4, & 5 are legendary. All three are examples of classical middle-eastern music that players of the oud know and perform. These pieces make up some of the most difficult of repertoire for the instrument. John transcribed these works for 2 ouds and recorded these versions for this album. In the last 26 years, these renditions are unmatched in speed, articulation, precision, and in interpretation for the instrument.
