Tulay Karaca (Turkey)

This is Turkish bellydancer Tulay Karaca performing with live music provided by a group of musicians. Tulay was famous not only for her tiny, gravity defying costumes but also for her incredible zill playing. In another clip she performs a solo piece accompanying herself only with her zills. This piece is also on the Carovan though there are clearer versions about. Tulay has long retired and is the aunt (not mother) of Turkish dancer Zinnur Karaca. The clip is taken from what was originally a VHS tape which was played a lot then eventually converted to digital so there is a loss of quality.
