Hale Sultan (2012)

A very quick clip of Hale Sultan a Turkish bellydancer performing at the Orient House in Istanbul. Hale was the last of three bellydancers performing during the evening. She was terrific but I was a bit disappointed as she danced almost exclusively in the Egyptian style, no Turkish/Rom folkloric, no 9/8 and no zills. Like most performers, she probably tailored her act to suit the audience, which that particular night were mostly Arabic. Many thanks to Michele Harrington for ID-ing Hale.
The music is well known to any dancer as the drum solo from the Tammerhenna routine.
