Belly Dance Tribute 12/22/11: Jazayer (Mimi, Vince & Devi-Ja Delgado)
The paths we cross in our Belly Dance journey are always intertwined. Today I just so happened to be searching for a particular song on Amazon to download as an MP3 file. I knew I had this song by Jazayer on an LP Album, but I wasn’t sure if I had it on a cassette tape that I could convert to MP3. At any rate, I ended up listening to some music that I loved by Jazayer, again. I have always loved their music and created many choreographies to their music. It was an honor to bring them to my hometown to perform LIVE music for my belly dance show in 1994 (with guest musician Susu Pampanin). I had previously choreographed dances to some of their music that I had on LP and Cassette. It was a real honor to dance with them performing the music live in my show to that song “Rhythms” and Vince jamming the drum solo from Jazayer: Hijaz City, Bayyat State. I pulled out that old VHS today. It was a fond memory of meeting them in person and reliving that show again. Actually bittersweet with the passing of Mimi and Devi. Vince keep playing that great music that you do and we love and I know that Mimi & Devi are still playing sweet music with you from Heaven.
