    sezen aksu - rakkas "salla salla gül .... çağlasın"

    you can also find some harem or asena's music just for belly dancing but they are instrumental, no lyrics...

    i will write a few more but sezen aksu's is the best!!!!!

    Hi Gina,
    which direction are you looking for: classical arabic belly dance music, turkish/greek belly dance music, arabic popmusic, modern belly dance music.; belly dance music esp. for small children?
    There´s a whole lot.
    Sezen Aksu (Rakkas = Sala) and the Harem CDs are a good choice, but if your children are beginners they might be to difficult to dance to.
    There is an american production by "the belly dance superstars" which have a wide range of music and the CDs have a selection of many sections (classical, pop and modern).

    So, if you like, write a little bit more what you are looking for and we can help you.

    HAve a nice day, Tahira

    Hi Kalle,

    Istanbul Oriental Ensemble is a great choice, also the other possibilities Milena gave us (I love Asena CD).

    Unfortunatelly Gina didn´t answer anymore. So we should know how old are her children. I found out, children/people raised only with western music have problems in listening to typical turkish or arabic music.

    I give lessons in belly dancing to children and I found out that they love e.g. Dudu, Simarik bei Tarkan or Boro Boro by Arash. So to say easy-listening music.

    Maybe gina replies soon.

    Bye, Tahira

    Thanks to all that replied to my email. I'm so surprised so many people replied. I My kids are 20 mths., 7 and 4yrs old. The oldest is a girl and loves all the belly dancing clothing. They all like Turkish music some songs more than others. I have to admit I was not aware of the vast variety of belly dancing. Please excuse my ignorance. My turkish friends didn't tell me there were different kinds. But they are not into belly dancing like that either. So please educate me so I can teach my daughter the differences. I am also my own research too.
    Thanks again everyone.

    Hi Tahira,

    My kids really liked the baba fen video. Do you have the lyrics to "Dudu"? Is this song just a good belly dancing song? Any ideas on some easy children songs?

    Thanks again for the help.

    Dudu - Tarkan

    Ağlamadan ayrılık olmaz hatıralar uslu durmaz
    Kalanlar gideni gönlünde taşır aşk sevene yük olmaz
    Biz böyle bilir böyle yaşarız

    Ooo ooo o da biliyor Ooo ooo o da seviyor
    Ooo ooo bile bile kafa tutuyor aşka
    Gözü kara o yine bildiğini okuyor

    Çiçek gibi tazecik kıymetli bir tanecik anasütü gibi
    tertemiz
    Dudu dudu dilleri lılık lıkır içmeli gözleri derya deniz

    Bu gönül ona torpil geçiyor etrafında fır dönüyor
    El bebek gül bebektir o ne yapsa inadına hoş görüyor
    Kara kara düşündürüyor

    Tekrar -A-

    Sen güldüğüme bakma gör de duyd a inanma
    Tuz buz oldu bu kalp ah onbin parça
    Aldığım her nefeste attığım her adımda
    Burda olsa ah cancağazım yanımda olsa

    Tekrar -B-

    Ata ata dertleri hep içime attım
    İnsan gibi yaşamak benim de hakkım
    İçimdeki zemberek kırıldı artık
    Tamiri mümkün değil ise işte o gün yandık
    Hergün yağmur yağabilir
    Herkes hata yapabilir
    Birbirimize tutunursak
    Belki güneş doğabilir

    Tekrar -B-

    Hi Gina,
    these both songs (baba fen and Dudu) are songs, which "my children"/pupils like very much. Thats why I suggested them to you. The Baba fen song is called Ha´lu (Hello) and you can find it on a CD called Tarbish (CD Cover is a baby wearing a turkish fez/hat); Dudu is on a Tarkan-CD. I wouldn´t call Dudu a typical belly dance song, but the children like it and you can make smooth movements.
    As elisario and I mentioned before, if you choose the bellydance superstars CDs (I prefer Vol 1-3) you will have a great selection. There is also Asena Music, very modern music von Said Mrad, egyptian Pop as Hakim,Khaled Agag, Nancy Ajram; classical dance music (but I guess this is kin dof difficult to hear for your children).

    Another idea - I don´t know where you live in the US but maybe you live in a bigger town where turkish or arab immigrants live, so you should go into their shops and most of them offer diferent kind of CDs to a very cheap price. At least in Germany they do it so.

    You´re welcome if you have more questions.
    Have a nice day, Tahira
