A Duet by Naiya and Numa'ir

A lighthearted choreography and interplay performed by Naiya and Numa'ir at the Bellydancer of the Year in 2008. I found that these two managed to deconstruct the existent stereotypes of male and female dancers of the genre, in performing together as a pair, perhaps something to think about in future performances. Especially cute are the playful body isolations for the drum solo, from 5:40 onward to 6:20. They also have performances from 2007 (Cane & trademark humor) and 2009 (Macarena) available on YouTube.
