Hello everyone. I have a question/request and this seemed like a good place to go. I'm a choreographer and I have my first huge show coming up. It's the most responsibility I've been given thus far, and the dance core is a band of gypsies. With that in mind:

I need some music that has a mystical, gypsy-esque feel to it, maybe with arabian influence, possibly similar to bellydancing music? I'm not sure
BUT
1)
I've heard Quidam from Crique du Soleil has a similar feel to that. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to even hear clips from it because they don't have that option for that CD on Amazon. I don't know much about Varekai. What sort of feel does it have?

Would anyone be willing to share the tracks with me?

I'll buy it if I end up liking the music, but I'm searching through alot of music and I can't buy 50 CD's, I don't have the funds. It would be so incredibly helpful.


2) Does anyone happen to have other suggestions for music similar to what I'm looking for, Cirque du Soleil or not? I could really use any help because I'm kind of shooting in the dark here.

Oh, and an additional note: I know Cirque de Soleil has some realyl beautiful vocals but that's not what I'm focusing on, so, the more instrumental, the better.

Any suggestions you have would be so very helpful.
Thank you!!

Varekai has some nice, gypsy-esque stuff, but also a lot of vocals.. I'll try uploading a couple from different shows for you, but I'm not sure if I can get it done before I leave for school. ^^; If not, I'll do it tonight~

Okay.. here are a few I found upon first glance.. a few of these have varied vocals, which is unfortunate, but.. that's just kind of how Cirque is. x_x Anyway, I'm in a bit of a hurry now, but I'll keep looking more in-depth when I get home from work tonight.
