|The music heard on the Visionary Dance belly dance video tapes was composed for these projects by Steven Flynn, Northwest composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist. In his work, ancient and modern musical elements combine to produce exotic soundscapes and musical narratives that ignite and inspire the imagination.
Working closely with Delilah on the compositions, he has created world music designed to meet the expressive needs of the contemporary bellydancer.
Check out this recent Silk Road Dance Performance at the Kennedy Center with Laurel Gray, featuring music by Steven Flynn.
The ecstatic, passionate poetry of the 13th century mystic Jelaluddin Rumi is the inspiration for the music on this new album by Steven Flynn. Dark, turbulent, jubilant, these churning melody lines haunt us and rip at our hearts. Joined by master percussionist Armando Mafufo, Steven utilizes ney (reed flute), tar (frame drum), digeridoo, violin, and more in creating this music. Hot rhythms and yearning melodies combine to make songs that speak of the desires of both body and soul. Great music for listening or dancing.

These nine compositions
by Steven Flynn, filled with rich textures, heart-felt
melodies and compelling rhythms, include music heard
on the videos, Delilah's Bellydance Workshop,
Volume III, and Delilah's Costume Workshop,
as well as new works. The music weaves worlds in
the air, for dancers to glide through in their bodies,
or listeners to tour in their minds. The songs provide
fresh opportunities for the dancer to expand her
art with music that, while non-traditional, is perfectly
suited to the bellydance. Side Two contains a full
20 minute routine, complete with drum solo.

Seven pieces written
and recorded by Steven Flynn for the video series, Delilah's
Bellydance Workshop. You'll find baladi,
masmoudi, karshilama, chefti-telli, and a beautiful
bolero. This is music for the contemporary American
"Here is music for dancing and dreaming. The moods conveyed encourage the imagination to wander through that exotic realm which may only exist in the tales of the Arabian Nights, but which is ever-so-appealing to the Western mind."

This is music for mind and body. It
is a utility tape, designed for use with various types of physical and
mental exercises - dancing, working out, meditating. Side One contains the
music written to accompany the Warm-Up Ritual in Delilah's
Bellydance Workshop, Volume I. Side Two contains a long, slow drum
chant for use with meditation, ritual, or slow physical movement
exercises. This is followed by the Zahr, a Middle-Eastern trance rhythm
which begins slowly and works into a frenzy. Delilah uses these pieces in
her live workshops, and has received numerous requests that we make them
available on an audio cassette.
