Re: music for Egyptian unit?


Date: Tue Oct 08 2002 - 16:48:23 PDT


Two suggestions ... one serious and one 'last resort'. The
serious suggestion would be to track down a group called Les
Musiciens du Nile (a.k.a. the Musicians of the Nile, depending on
which store you're in). They play a traditional folk/gypsyish
sort of music which is native to the Upper Nile region. I saw
them live once and they're definitely evocative of something
rather ancient (they play on traditional instruments as well).
The last resort suggestion would be to track down the Alan
Parsons Project album called "Pyramid", which is at least
evocative, if not traditional ... (perhaps you could play both?).
