Book Reviews & Awards

• “Closes a multitude of holes in our understanding, eliminates the need to rely on colonialist wish-story…important, well-written chronicle”—Carolina Varga Dinicu a.k.a. “MOROCCO,” dancer/choreographer

• “Finally! I begged Sherifa to write a book on the dance and music of Egypt—especially contemporary after the Golden Era. And she did. What a service to our dance and music community. Thank you!”—Amina Goodyear, dancer, teacher, musician, producer.
