In her new course starting 3rd March, Mayel will teach a choreography to Wahshani Baladi by Carole Samaha. Composed to the well known traditional Egyptian song Leilat El Hob, Carole Samaha's lyrics beautifully expresses one's love for their country and their home. Mayel aims to show the passion, sadness, love and hope expressed in the music through her choreography.
All the best dancers out there are capable of expressing emotions through their dance to tell a story to the audience...
Mayel's amazing ethereal performance was enjoyed by all at Mr Ozgen's Jamming & Drumming Party at the stunning Kibele Resturant on Great Portland Street. Watch the video to see her dancing with her beautiful fan veils and improvised drum solo with top London darbuka player Sallam Alsheik. Mayel cannot wait to surprise the audience again at the next Mr Ozgen event!
Mayel had so much fun teaching her 'The Art of Performing to Live Music' Workshop on the 26th Janurary. Here she and her students are improvising to Malfuf, Whada kebira & Saidi rhythms provided by the talented Sallam Alsheik playing live on the tabla! Though very intensive, Mayel's students had a great time learning how to recognise the different rhythms, improvise to them and interact with the drummer. Mayel and Sallam were extremely proud of the students as they each took turns to improvise individually with Sallam at the end of the workshop. Well done girls!
