Belly Up: Beats Antique and "Egyptic"

Get your belly out and dancing! Today's random tune is from Beats Antique, an American experimental world fusion and electronic group formed in 2007 in San Francisco with producer Miles Copeland. They mix different genres of music and their live shows use samples and heavy percussives with performance art and tribal fusion dance. In this video, the belly dancer is Zoe Jakes, a member of the group who mixes traditional belly dancing with tango, popping and Indian dance. The song, Egyptic, can be found on their 2010 album Blind Threshold. This video was made of a live performance Beats Antique did for KEXP Radio.
