Misirlou

Here’s are some youtube videos I found with Misirlou.

Teaching video for Miserlou Israeli version:

Beach Boys do Miserlu

Old Arabic version

On the Facebook Sacred Circle Dance group, I learned:

There’s info on the net about the long history of Misirlou. The original song to which the dance was put was indeed called Misirlou – a dance teacher in the USA put the Syrtos Kritkos steps, or a version of them, to a different piece of music – Misirlou. I don’t know how much later Sto Perigiali subsequently became a favourite piece for Circle Dancers to dance the Misirlou steps to.

Here’s the Touchstone Library entry.
