Saidi [from: Training / Practice plan]
« on: December 23, 2019, 02:42:29 AM »
...
(Saidi is often used for bellydance, and comes a bit various and tricky.)
You can hear (and see) the man failing first time at 0:45s. Only due to the great professionalism, I hope so, the whole ensemble follows and plays Saidi with a taste of Baladi like one man. It's life - really, I like it!
...

... finally to show you what Saidi actually looks like - great performance

Very good performance!!  Thanks for the video.  I love the Saidi rhythm - quite simple, yet very galant!

This is the first Iíve seen a dance in use with a staff.  Is the staff in substitute of a sword?

O.k.- I feel this is running to be a new topic...

"Substitute" isn't that right word - there's a lot of different items coming with Saidi style.

 by the way - I'm not sure according to the Christmas caps, but very nice and perfectly fits in season!
:)

The whirling moves in the middle of the clip, what I know, are Zaar and related to Ayoub rhythm.

But there was no sword yet, let's have a look at one now (2nd half is Saidi):

Great videos!!  Thanks for sharing these :). Much variety in the first, and Iíve always enjoyed a sword dance.  The elegance is mesmerizing!  Itís a shame that this dancing is not common in the States.  There are some small areas here and there, but none really in driving distances to us.  Itís sad :(
