Happy 15 Years of Shimmies to Me!

Jamila at StratosI remember seeing my first belly dance performance at a Greek restaurant in Scottsdale, Az. The belly dancer was stunning in her beautiful costume.  She was also the owners wife, imagine that.  And I remember saying to myself, “someday I want to be a belly dancer.”  And so the seed was planted.

It’s been 15 years ago this Month that I began my belly dance dream. My friend and first teacher Samara introduce me to this beautiful dance. I still use the Zills she gave me to learn with and I always think of her when I use them. She told me that they should be upgraded, that the quality wasn’t very good. I couldn’t imagine using any other Zills.

I’ve danced in an award winning troupe, as a solo dancer for both public and private events. Some glamorous and some not so much. I cherish every opportunity to dance and meeting all the talented people in the belly dance community.

The photo provided is my first belly dance show at Stratos, taken by Easy Street Images.

Peace, Love & Shimmies,
Jamila

Refreshing Holiday CD Features Rhythms from the Middle East!

Jamila Johari @ ByblosCHRISTMAS: RHYTHMS OF THE HOLY LAND cd is a welcomed twist to familiar Christmas songs infused with luscious ancient rhythms from the Middle East. The many talented drummers on the album weave a rich tapestry colored by warm wooden flute tones and shades of mandolin. Adding to the album’s immense grace and proportion is the final song which is added almost as a closing prayer, Tikkun Olam (Healing the World.)
