Odalisca and Derbake

Video Find of the Day

Performance in Argentina at a Syrian Orthodox Association (?) of an odalisca, which is what you might also call a harem dance. The dancer has the representation of the fire element down.

Another new word: derbake. It means the drum (tabla or tabla-like drum) you hear as well as the dance that goes with it. I think this one is also from Argentina, though it's hard to tell. The dancer is Cintia Ibarra.
