Album Notes
The migration from ancient days into modern times is what continuously inspires the the Gypsy Caravan. they have just released their seventh cd, QUEST, which has 14 songs, sometimes powerful, sometimes haunting, the music will transport you through the wide spectrum of emotions, in that eclectic tribal kind of caravan way.
The Gypsy Caravan is an eclectic troupe of tribal bellydancers and musicians, founded in 1991 by artistic director Paulette Rees-Denis. They are urban berbers, a contemporary family, dedicated to performing Middle Eastern and North African inspired rhythms and dances.
Performing a fusion style of tribal bellydance that reflects the ancient longing to celebrate community spirit, their name pays tribute to the nomadic Gypsies and tribal folk who carried their song and dance with them as they traveled. Beginning on the Gypsy Trail in India, the Gypsies performed traditional dances for the various communities they encountered, in Egypt through Algeria, Morocco, Turkey, Greece, to Spain. Rhythms, costumes, and dance styles shaped Gypsy's lives as they migrated from country to country.
The Caravan musicians play a combination of traditional and modern instruments. Percussive acoustic instruments, such as the dumbek, davul, tar, and djembe, match the dancers' vigorous hip movements. Melodies played on various wind instruments including zurna, mizmar, arghul, and ney, inspire the dancers' sinuous stylings. They sometimes fuse other instruments into the music -- the harmonium from India, the didgeridoo from Australia, and others. Together they contribute to an exhilarating and dancer driven, often mesmerizing sound.
With the resurging interest in this dance style, the Gypsy Caravan have toured throughout the Pacific Northwest, around North America, Europe, and Australia from their home base in Portland, Oregon. Gypsy Caravan, and Jeff's side band, Mizna, have released nine CDs, the latest being Remarkably Remixed,of their original eclectic, middle-eastern influenced music. Instruments such as the zurna, djembe, dumbek, mijwiz, and various percussion now are remixed to kick it up.Inspired by the improvisational dance style of the tribal bellydancers, the music can be mesmerizing and hipnotic, or energetic and rockin'.
This tribal troupe produced an award-winning documentary film, Tribal Travels, and eight Tribal bellydance instructional DVDs. The director, Paulette Rees-Denis, has had her first book, Tribal Vision, published in June 2008, by Cultivator Press.

great cd well worth the cost

Jessica Millman

This album has a special meaning for me as it was the very first CD that I heard at my very first American Tribal Style dance class.

It is an absolute must have for anyone who appreciates the flavours of traditional Middle Eastern music. It is FANTASTIC to dance to and just brilliant to listen to. Try putting this on to do the housework... it'll be a totally different experience!! MUCH more fun!
There are a few gems that stir my heart every time I hear them. I can't get enough!

These are my two fav tracks:
Zafiran Trance = Hypnotic & beautiful
Allesandra = Brilliantly catchy! So much fun for dancing in a group!

Happy dancing to all xoxo
Jess :)


Perfect for Tribal Belly Dance
I ordered this CD for Tribal Fusion Belly Dancing and it is perfect. The tracks are the correct length and varied enough to give great scope for interesting dance choreography. The music is haunting and exotic. Wonderful dance music!
