Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Did I tell you about my friend who grew up near Cairo, who talks about the various different birdsongs, that the Nile is the stopping off point (I'm sure I've told you this--and you know!), so each morning he'd wake up on his balcony to the sound of twenty two different songs, all sung at the same time, and his theory was that arabic music grew out of that sound--but there's also a sadness to arabic music, a release of sadness through music (as my ears hear it)--and all the microtones connecting to India, so I think you'll like this--

(I think--I think!--that sometimes the video goes out of sync with the music, music to listen to, the video is just--an accompaniment.  5:01)

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
