This CD is great for any lover of Middle Eastern Music. It makes the perfect gift for a belly dancer. Volume II CD feature Mimi Spencer on qanun (zither) and voice, and Mary Ellen Donald on doumbek and tambourine. Each CD contains 15 pieces with an ample supply of entrance pieces, slow pieces, drum solos, tip music, and finale music. The drum solos are hot, uniquely constructed, very danceable, and a perfect length with deep resonant sounds of the djembe bringing to them an African flavor. An often recorded instrumentalist, Mimi Spencer made her singing debut as a recorded vocalist in the Gems series, singing in five Middle Eastern languages. The Gems CD's reflect the rich musical partnership that had developed between Mimi and Mary Ellen as they performed together for over 20 years.
