..::: DIKANDA ONLINE :::..

Okay, maaaaybe just one quick thing more. ^_^  THIS is the incredible music from the video, which I just -had- to track down. ^_^  The group is called “Dikanda,” and upon hearing (even more) of their stuff, I of course just -had- to share. ;D  (I mean, is this perfect bellydancing music or WAT?? XD)  Mehopes you like, and blessed be!

I’ve gotta run to keep getting ready for FaerieWorlds this weekend, but before I go, I didn’t want to leave you w/nothing.  So here’s something I hope you’ll enjoy, that’ll tide you over for the next couple of days. :)  It’s a beautiful skirt routine, and it’s done to some truly lovely music. ^_^  (And thankfully, the actual YT page has a link to the music used, so.. YOINK!  More music to buy- or, rather, add to my wish list! ^_^)

I hope you enjoy this little piece, and that y’all have a beautiful, beautiful weekend.  See you soon on the other side! :D  (And hopefully, I’ll see some of you at FW, both in and out of the tank! ^_^)

How’s about a little Cabaret goodness to put a shimmy in your Saturday night..? :D  

Plus, I like her costume. ^_^  (Would you call that “nude” or “light pink” or “golden..?”)  Either way, I love how it kinda blends into her skin tone.  Very artful use of a “nude-ish look” there, with great little bits of shine & beading & embellishments in other hues. ^_^

SO ADORABLE! XD

Guess what today is..?  It’s FRIDAY!!!  And, y’all know what that means, right..?  Time for more awesome, geeky bellydance! XD

Today’s two geeky bellydance features are both brought to you by the letters “S” and “W.”  (So for those of you who’re Star Wars fans, you’re in for a treat. ;))  I dig this piece because not only does it offer up more adorable Leia goodness, but it features one of my favorite songs within the whole SW genre- the Ewoks’ victory song!  -And it’s play by an equally adorable live band! ^_^  SWGeekSquee! ^_^

When I was 6 or 7, I got to actually see the original version of this in theatres, and I was -so- enthralled that even though my throat randomly closed up toward the end and I inexplicably stopped breathing, I stuck it out, sobbing through tears of terror and all, just to see the ending. *lol*  I kept running back to my mom frantic and clawing at my throat to tell her I couldn’t breathe, but every time she asked me if I wanted to go to the hospital, I’d shake my head “no” and stumble my way back to my seat. *shakes head, laughing hat her childSelf*  And thankfully, I not only survived, but I positively ADORED the ending- from Ewoks to music to actors hugging and all. :)  So.. while the wait might have been terrifying, getting to see the end of “Return of the Jedi” was toootally worth it. ;)  

-And that’s why this tune will always have a special place in my heart. :)  (As will the ambulance ride and hospital visit that came immediately after. ;)  -Hooraaaay for air masks w/yellow pee-looking stuff in them- w/their anomalous li’l black floaty bits! *lol*)  
..Besides, who doesn’t love the Ewoks?? ^_^

How about you..?  Do you have a fave SW memory..?  Did you get to see any of the films in theatres..?  Or do you have any dance performances w/a SW bent..?  If so, drop me a line!  I wanna hear from you. ^_^
