4323 How To Make Your Husband A Sultan - With ozel Turkbas

SKU: $16.99
The 1960s classic that first introduced Americans to authentic Turkish bellydance, and to some of the great Turkish nightclub musicians of the 20th century, including the legendary Turkish-Gypsy clarinet player Mustafa Kandirali--all under the guise of that swing-era staple, the art of domestic seduction. Produced by and featuring the famous Turkish dancer ozel Turkbas, first brought to America to dance by Italian movie director Franco Zeferelli, the album sold 150,000 copies in the US (and a million in Turkey), spawning the craze for bellydance and Turkish music that continues today. Notes include ozel's original bellydance instructions with pictures. ''A practice run through with the record,'' she promised, ''and tonight you can be bellydancing for that luckiest of men--your sultan!'' Featuring: Mustafa Kandirali, clarinet Ahmet Yatman, kanun Cevdet cagla, violin Tarik Bulut, piano Leszlo Kubinyi, drum Gerhard Rudolph, bass ozel Turkbas, finger cymbals & vocals 1. TOKAT 2.
