40 Days and 1001 Nights
By Tamalyn Dallal
$20 CAD (+shipping)
Tamalyn Dallal traveled to five Muslim countries from 2005-2006. This was a voyage of discovery- to see if the images of terror so often asscociated with this large swathe of the world ring true or if there is more we need to learn. She spent 40 days in each land; Indonesia, Egypt's Siwa Oasis, Zanzibar, Jordan, and China's Xinjiang Autonomous Region. She tells of people, food, traditional celebrations, dances, music, and social issues.
Tamalyn Dallal is one of the most sought after instructors and performers of bellydance today. She was one of the original Bellydance Superstars and has herself taught and produced many of today's biggest bellydance stars such as Bozenka and Amar Gamal. This book is an insightful look at Tamalyn's adventures in 5 Muslim countries. A great read!
