From the back cover: Yousef Kouyoumjian, born in Bagdad, Iraq, has done much to revive the classical art form of belly dance which is the visual part of Mid-Eastern music. His Bagdad Cabaret on Broadway, San Francisco has been a gathering place for musicians and dancers for over a decade. Youself has toured extensively with his ensemble in Mexico and the Mid-East as well as the U.S. Yousef's first recording (Bagdad BG 1001) continues to be a favorite with professional belly dancers as well as those who are just learning this ancient art.
