The Devil's Anvil, Shisheler

My wife Laura is a belly dancer (not professionally, just for fun). Last year, she was preparing for a hafla, where belly dancers get together to perform for each other, and the theme of it was "rock music", so she was looking for rock music she could belly dance to. She found this band from the 1960s, The Devil's Anvil, that played traditional Arabic, Turkish, and Greek music with rock rhythms and instruments. There were four members. The lead singer was Palestinian, and his main foil was an Israeli Jew. The band released one album in 1967, "Hard Rock from the Middle East". Unfortunately the album came out right as the Six Day War was happening in Israel, and the album sank like a rock. They never released another record. "Shisheler" is a traditional Turkish song given a rock treatment.
