Album Notes
"Saludos" opens with arghool evoking a hot, lazy spice market scene and goes on to an unusual Tunisian 4/4 rhythm, Saadawi Thani.

"Joydance" is all percussion. It could be a great drum solo all on its own, and is suitable for a group choreography. It's a good medium fast tempo with simple breaks and accents,

"In the Shade" features the ney in 4/4 time. It feels soft and rolling, light and airy like the perfume of jasmine wafting over a wall on a late summer breeze.

"Tanta Bariga" would be great for a dramatic or theatrical floor or sword dance, featuring one or many dancers.

"Bajo la Luna" begins with a ney solo, meditative as the ney is, breathy. A mellow 6/8 Shabia rhythm on bendir and defs, with other sinewy and organic percussion sounds, keeping this Moorish piece smooth.

"Solo Numba 9" comes at you in a medium tempo, all Egyptian tabla talking.

"Foolindabul" is a 12/8 Buleria rhythm. Fast fingers and rapid ripples characterize this great new interpretation of the traditional flamenco rhythm.

"Recuerdos" is a Bolero 4/4 and features the santur. The intro is all santur - gorgeous, haunting, ethereal and plaintive.

"Adios, Aloha, Salam" has that classic "Sahidi strut" sort of feel, very royal and queenly. More of that wonderful arghool....KAJIRA
