Radio Bastet

If you love vintage Middle Eastern music like I do – I mean the real stuff, with heavy drums and real instruments, rather than the drum kits and keyboards of today’s Arabic music, you absolutely must check out the podcasts of Radio Bastet. Marisa, the site owner, has a massive collection of golden age belly dance vinyl LPs and has put together around 80 podcasts for our listening pleasure with tracklists, album covers, and all. Such an amazing collection! This is not only some of the best belly dance music out there, but sounds I would recommend to any music lover.
