What's your favorite kind of middle eastern music, artist, or song?

Munir Bachir, Sufi, classical Persian, Turkish, oud, ney, dumbek: don't really have much knowledge, but do know when I love it. Thrilled to find this group.

Do you play a musical instrument or sing (definitely not required for joining, but great to know)

no, but I love to DANCE: free-form, often as meditation, often with Middle Eastern influence (due to a Sufi teacher's use of belly dance as part of the practice). My fantasy: dance with live musicians jamming. Hope to find opportunities for this!


I love world music, particularly Turkish, Arabic, Iranian, Indian, African, Balkan, Roma, Klezmer, Xydeco/Cajun plus more, & am open to checking out the unfamiliar. I'm especially drawn to Sufi music. And if there's space to dance, all the more joy!
