Gothic belly dance music?
I am a Gothic belly dancer and I am looking for some new music to dance to at a workshop I am attending in August. Would anyone know of somewhere that I find some new Gothic belly dance style music that I may look through to find something? I am really interested in something that still has the middle eastern rhythms but with a Gothic flare. It's probably a tall order, but I don't know where to look! LOL! Any help would be appreciated!

Nikki, you'll be surprised at the odd mix of dancers on here....
The easy way to find some good new music is to look at gothic bellydancers on youtube and see what music they are using. Search the word "Gothla" as well as many major gothic bellydance festivals are called Gothla.
Artists on my Goth bellydance playlists include Corvus Corax, Faun, Qntal, Solace, Bauhaus, Collide, Jill Tracy, Bruderschaft, Daughters Of Gaia, Camerata Mediolanense, Gothart, Mutaytor, Ongyilkos Vasarnap, Peoples Bizarre, Vagabond Opera, Wax Tailor
Bargheust aren't widely known but play for a gothic bellydance group in Wales.
Sultan Osman by Pete Namlook & Burhan Öçal has some very atmospheric pieces and I haven't seen anybody use them yet.
FM radio for gothic bellydance
2nd track it came up with for me was Enigma – T.N.T. for the Brain - new to me, and not a bad suggestion, and then Maduro which I'd forgotten about. Very Ariellah.

I don't think you'll get a lot of good answers on here, to be honest.
Maybe you could try remixing some songs together. Like take some regular belly dancing music, and maybe mix it into some goth music you like.
