9/8 Drum Solo
Spice up the 9/8 Rhythm in this fusion drum solo where you will see many traditional roman dance moves with some spices of Flamenco.

Ozgen fuses his past Tango dance experience with bellydance technique to create a passionate performance piece with lots of Tango characterization and Oriental sensuality.
