From the back cover: Ozel has repaid her American fans with an outpouring of creativity – in two years, she has released two records and the definitive lesson book, The Art Of Belly Dancing. The success of these efforts is the direct result of Ozel's authenticity as performer and teacher – she does not offer watered-down, commercialized versions of dances and music (too complicated) for Americans. The final stamp of authenticity came early this year when her first album, How To Belly Dance For Your Sultan, sold its millionth copy in Turkey.
This is the third of a series of records Ozel is releasing to help American women learn a new way of exercise while they are (simultaneously) learning to please and excite their male audience. Once again Ozel has assembled the finest musicians from the middle east made them comfortable in the most sophisticated New York Recording Studios, and turned the tape recorders on.
