Posted: Friday July 8, 2016 7:11am EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

Musique Aramenco, a new live entertainment act, is now performing at Epcot's Morocco Pavilion.

The new three piece band is very similar to the MO'ROCKIN act that performed at the pavilion for 15 years. A belly dancer is part of the show, and there are even some familiar faces from the former MO'ROCKIN group.

Check out the video for a look at part of their show from opening day.

Showtimes are typically 1:20pm, 2:20pm, 3:45pm, 4:45pm, 5:45pm, 6:30pm, 7:45pm, with performances taking place Wednesday through Sunday.

Like most new acts appearing at Epcot, Musique Aramenco is a limited time engagement at Epcot. The new group replaces Ribab Fusion.

Finally got around to watching the video. The other lady was better on the eyes and the dancing. I'm not complaining by any means.

Just tell her, "If I didn't like that, I wouldn't like you. I'd like the guitar player."

Belly dancing exists in Restaurant Marrakesh. @Incomudro 's avatar is the dancer that I saw in 2014. The Times Guide even says when the show starts (2 men playing instruments, then the dance show, then a short instrumental finale). Entertainment, real good food, ambiance of the place itself (for lunch - dinner having more people there - and the lights turned up for that reason kinda kills that), and it's a walk-in lunch... (recommendation: Chicken Bastilla appetizer, Roast Lamb entree, then walk it off).

I think they sound great and the dancer is very interesting to watch. Hope to catch them on our next visit!

It's unique. I think that's important. Rather than just another instrumental group, this involves belly dancing, something I do not believe exists anywhere else in World Showcase. So not everything is for everyone. I found the video entertaining to watch for two minutes, but I probably wouldn't stand there and watch the entire thing. But perhaps that's good, it'll give people something to see as they pass by and create a better atmosphere. I am a fan of rotating acts in and out. And considering the stage was previously unoccupied, this is certainly a plus in my book. And I must confess that I actually liked the Canada chainsaw guys... Okay I probably should've kept that a secret.
