My Top-10 Arabic Songs For Audience Engagement

belly dance blog


Audience participation is often an important part of a belly dance show. How many times did event organizers or clients asked you to engage people into dancing? Not to mention that if you are performing for an Arabic audience, people often won't even wait for your invitation but simply jump on the dance floor and join you in dancing, lol.

Audience participation is one of my favourite parts of the show. It's always fun and energetic, but at the same time it can go really wrong if the music choice is not the best...

Here is a list of my 10 favourite songs specifically for audience interaction. Each of these songs works great both for A͟͟r͟͟a͟͟b͟͟i͟͟c͟͟ a͟͟u͟͟d͟͟i͟͟e͟͟n͟͟c͟͟e͟͟ who understand the lyrics, as well as for n͟͟o͟͟n͟͟-Ar͟͟a͟͟b͟͟i͟͟c͟͟ a͟͟u͟͟d͟͟i͟͟e͟͟n͟͟c͟͟e͟͟s͟͟ for whom upbeat feel and grove is the most important. Save this post for your future gigs.⠀
