I originally learned of "Light Rain" through a review of bellydance music. Now, I am NOT a bellydancer, just someone who likes to try different things - but after listening to scads of "traditional" middle eastern music (I lived in Egypt for two years), this is truly a nice change of pace. The instrumentals are "new-agey" with a middle eastern flavor; there are none of the strangling-cat vocals to which western ears are unaccustomed. I wish the composer (Doug Adamz) would add music clips to his listings, but you can hear some of the songs on this CD at http://www.shira.net/music-darkfire.htm. Gotta go shake some hips now!
