Some famous songs for "belly dance"

(I'm using these videos with just the music, not the dancers, because so many of the videos that show the dancers seem not very family-friendly!)

(I love the music from this "Beats Antique" group. This represents some of the "tribal" and "fusion" types of "belly dance" music --- i.e., not so much the "Arabian" sound, but with a strong beat that's good for dancing and improvising.)

(Flamenco music is also well suited for "belly dance," and of course has the same roots...)

Speaking of flamenco, here are some great examples, and I think the "belly dance" I'm thinking of for the Colonel characters can involve some kind of mix between these types, including the clothing they wear(!)
