sky, wind, meetings with remarkable men,

when I was young, I played the darbukka for a saz player
heard koroglu at dawn, with the light shining through leaves
took ney lessons in istanbul from the gentle arif
met and had the honour to listen to Djamchid Chemirani teach
allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385">

here with his beautiful sons
and bathe in his smile
now I am at last tapping the same deep well, the ashik spirit, the dervish soul
as a woman,
it is there, deep, quiet, breathing, singing,beating, shining in the sky, in the dark of night

I love this music so much that I will be purchasing from YouTube if possible. There is something in it that stirs the soul. Thankyou so very much for posting these great artists.

mmmmmmm... thank you... I am feeling my roots that are still mingled with the olive trees of Samos... and remembering....remembering the shores of Turkey and the inspiring music wafting to me from Izmir...
