Fortuna Records announce compilation of rare Lebanese belly dance music


The eclectic Tel Aviv based imprint has revealed a new album featuring abstract dance music recorded in 70's and 80's Lebanon. The imprint has become a hotbed for psychedelic Middle Eastern music emerging from Israel and has acted as a platform for new artists alongside showcasing lost gems. 

The new compilation is made up of ten tracks handpicked from the massive catalog of Beirut-based label “Voix De l’Orient”. Known for their extensive “Belly Dance” series, Voix De l’Orient released countless records by some of the biggest names in Lebanese music such as Fairuz, Omar Khorshid and the Rahbani Brothers.
