Record heat and heated rhetoric. Our Economy held hostage. The slimy arms of a News Corporation reaching everywhere. Deadly Right Wing terrorism. It’s been an intense week.
Sometimes, for your own mental health, you just need to take a break. So, this weekend’s theme is about getting away from it all, whether it’s relaxing on a beach or musically traveling to an exotic place or another time.

Nice, BSM. Which of those guys are you?

I love this! This is going straight to my iPod. Too bad it just fades away at the end of the video.
I can tell that he’s playing on one of the maqamat, but I can only identify one of them by ear (the Hijaz,) and this is certainly not that. Very beautiful improvisation.
I’m impressed you know that! I found it looking for examples of maqamat. I think he’s going off the traditional scale a little in this. Also, he’s Syrian, if that’s relevant at all–maybe not.
Paradise – The Temptations
(Sometimes getting away is being in someone’s arms)
That would work too, Sabreen!!
Do you know of a pair that are For Rent?? 🙂
I am just seeing your comment. Wish I could help you out. But I’m sure that as smart, kind hearted and probably very attractive, you’ll find those arms.
Yeah I saw the Rebecca Black and Miley Cyrus videos. That’s not cool. Not cool at all.
wts and jkk don’t get to post music anymore. And I say that with absolutely no authority.
It got better, AD!
Now I’m off to find something Just for you, old grouch! 😉
Can’t say I didn’t set myself up for that.
