Save this post right away, even if currently you don’t perform much for a Turkish audience. 💃💃💃⠀
Here is my go-to list of songs whenever I’m invited to perform for Turkish crowds. Some are actually Turkish, some are Arabic, BUT they all work really nicely for Turkish audience, so I usually mix them together in one nonstop set.
Sezen Aksu - Rakkas
Kiss Kiss by Tarkan
Kara GozLu Cingenem
John Bilezikjan - has Turkish arrangements of many Arabic songs
Drum solo - the faster and more upbeat, the better
Shik Shak Shok
Songs by Nancy Ajram or Haife Wehbe⠀
English spelling may vary, but all these songs are easily searchable. What is your fav Turkish songs to dance to? Let’s complete this list with your suggestions.
