    Tabla Competition is only 3:09, but the rhythm is consistent throughout.

    Not that I recommend this on a daily basis, but I couldn't get off my lazy duff the other night, so I motivated myself by doing my shimmy drills to Lady Gaga

    Most of the time, I actually like some of that repetitive "Gay Disco" techno BD music because it has a good steady beat for sustaining a shimmy. Anything by Turbo Tabla, Harem or Said Mrad is good brainless music that's fun to shimmy to before moving onto more serious tunes!

    Not Middle Eastern, but ideal for the purpose nevertheless: Hip Shake, by the Rolling Stones.

    Suhaila's Remix CD is the BEST for drills. Zill drills, shimmy drills - it has five songs of various speeds, ranging from 5 minutes to 20 minutes, each with their own steady beat. I use Stamina (20 minutes) for shimmy drills all the time.

    I use "Miserlou" and "Hava Nagila" by Dick Dale in my beginning classes, they always make me smile and students get a kick out of them, too.

    I also like Pulse of the Sphinx by the Henkesh Brothers:

    Re: Shimmy Drill Songs

    These are some of my faves:

    1) "Chicky" by Oojami
    2) "Desert Euphoria" by Giacomo Bondi
    3) "Move - Oriental Remix" by Said M'rad
    4) "Cedars of Lebanon" by Jef Stott

    I believe 2 & 4 are on the Electric Oasis 2 album, which I know you can download through - excellent album all around!!

    I hope that helps! :)
