Tribal Revolution: Tribal Fusion Bellydance Performances
The camerawork here is not the greatest, but if you're into Tribal fusion belly dance, you'll find interesting performances on this DVD, which aims to highlight the range of fusions out there. Note that it was made in 2008 and it's surprising how much Tribal Fusion has moved on since then!
Only two bones to pick! The Nekyia made me cringe once again - I'm just not comfortable with introducing stripperesque elements into belly dancing (haven't we spent years trying to break that stereotype?). And Princess Farhana's 1920's fan dance seemed a bit out of place in this company - but maybe my interpretation of "fusion" is too narrow!
However, two bad apples amongst twelve performances is a pretty good ratio so overall, this gets a thumbs up from me.
