Chris Marashlian: Middle Eastern Musician: I have performed on over 40 Middle Eastern/Arabic/Greek/Turkish/Armenian/English CDs, records, etc over the past 35 years. Most recently I have completed production on two major projects. The first is an all original music Bellydance routine CD which is specific to a 7, 10, 15 and 20 minute Bellydance routine and complete with drum solos, plus 3 bonus tracks. Perfect for dancers to dance out at clubs, gigs, small restaurants etc. when there is no live music. The other is an all instrumental, Greek, easy listening/ relaxation type CD to cool down, unwind and relax with after a stressful day. Please log onto my website
to check audio clips for my two CD releases.
When on the site just click on the album itself to be directed to the info page for each CD... OR you can just click on the individual links at
for the Bellydance routine CD, or
http://www.beautifulsoundsofgreece.com for the easy listening/instrumental Greek relaxation CD. If you are interested in helping me to make these two CD products available to your web visitors ,you may contact me at the above email address or phone numbers below, thank you, best.......Chris Marashlian
