    Ooooh, looking forward to hearing that album!
    The aboriginal pipe instrument is the didgeridoo, never played by a woman (women are not even meant to touch them), and definitely nonME!!

    I like Phil Thornton, but I'm less keen on Hossam Ramzy, I feel that it lacks idiosyncracy, or is just a teeny bit too bland and machine-like for me. Having said that, he certainly has passion and energy and output!!
    I think fusion in music runs into exactly the same problems that fusion in dance also runs into - at a certain point the original is lost and what is left is something less-than either of the original genres.
    Probably the same occurs in cooking as well!

    Wow, this is an essential difference! Thank you so much. I typed maquamat into google and now I have added onto my list of things I wish to understand. This is brilliant, thank you thank you! Now I know why my husband has trouble learning the oud after half a lifetime of guitar!
