All music in Yalla Habibi dance parties is secular and friendly (so not religious, not nationalistic) and selected for to rise happiness for to enjoy and dance All Together.

We play music of almost all countries from the party them regions (Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordania, Egypt, Turkey, UAE, Persia, Afghanistan, Qatar, Kurds, Yemen, Morocco, Algeria, ... and by immigrant musicians), by musicians of several world views and several genders.

In Yalla Habibi parties you can dance happily even hand in hand also with total strangers and fully gender neutrally too : )

And you can free out your "inner belly dancer" too:

Some of dances in Yalla Habibi parties are very alike to traditional Finnish dances too, like trad. dabke -dances have similarities with this trad. Finnish dance:

and trad. common European dances, like this:

But with dabke songs we play mostly modern dabke, which is more easy to join dance and everyone can dance own way together - so perfect self-specification on dance floor too :

And we play many other kinds of dance music also.

Typically Near East music has different scale and rhythm than (African music culture influenced) "western music" and varying free rhythm, but also other variations exist especially in music, which have also got influences from multi rhythm music traditions from Africa.
