Baladi is one of the most evocative styles of Egyptian music and dance. It calls up the mystery of Egypt combining the ancient past with not so long ago sounds of Mohamed Ali Street, where this style of music and dance began around the turn of the 20th Century. It was born out of Traditional Folk/Shaabi music a dance that we can still see and hear from the famous Musicians Of The Nile and the few remaining Ghawazee dancers. Western instruments such as the Accordion that is tuned to play quarter-tones and Saxophone imbue this traditional music. Baladi is the blues of Egyptian and like the American Blues, Greek Rembetika and Spanish Flamenco was born out of migrations and loss of place amongst other things.
