About

[photo is a production still from the proof-of-concept video with dancer, Jodi Waseca]

'Bellydance Unbound' is a bellydance performance video that will feature twelve different dark fusion bellydancers performing in eleven individual pieces.

The dancers that are participating in the video project have spent months looking for the perfect piece of music to help them create the precise mood of the piece that they are going to perform for the video. Some of them are still searching for that elusive selection of music.

The musicians that have agreed for their music to be used are aware at how integral their music is for the dancer and the performance itself, and as such, they rightfully ask to be duly compensated for their contribution to the project.

The music is going to be a diverse as the dancers themselves. Currently included in the soundtrack will be music from Chris Ferreira, Her Undulating ScalesCarla Kihlstedt with Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, DJ Knowa KnowoneThe Nuns, Psyclon NineSui Generis Umbra and Unwoman. More are to follow as music gets selected and musicians agree to the use of their music.

These pieces of music are very special to the dancers and have personal meaning them. Being able to pay for the licensing of the music will help them to create a performance that will have deep personal meaning to them and eventually to the viewers of the performances as well.

Keep checking back. More incentive packages may be added in the future and you can easily change to a different one if a pack is created you would prefer to have more.

If we go over our goal, the rest will be applied to other production expenses.
