“Final stop of the Journey: the Orgasm. The sky and the earth are reunited, tranquility is restored. This is BALADI. This is LIFE.
If you´re too prude – or afraid – to face it, you may not be invited into this world; the fruits of baladi may not be available for you to pick.
This was not a new subject on my “Great School of Mysteries of Egypt” graduation. The glances and comments I´d received from Egyptian audiences every time I performed my polemic “baladi” improvisations, and a genuine baladi is always improvised, showed me how strong is the connection between a Woman´s sexual life (and appetite) and the way she moves her hips. As if hips had a their secret language, a code that shows how much a woman loves herself and how strong is the connection between her mind, body, heart and soul. Her hips denounce how deep she digs into the pleasures of Existence, a kind of aliveness that slaps mediocrity directly on the face.”
