The deserts of Arabia have always fascinated me. Here’s an Eastern flavored piece suggesting a journey to Damascus.

Very fine job
It was a very strange feeling; the relentless background bed made me feel as if I were riding a camel on a long, long journey. The many flutes suggested I stick it out for the promise of dancing girls and good food as I rested my weary bones at journey's end. Was that a sitar I heard in the right channel? :-)

Very nice Charles.

God bless,

Thank you Rick
Hope you didn't get saddle burns riding that camel. Can't delivery on the dancing girls or good food -bout all I can give you is a good tune.
Really happy you liked it and for your kind comments.

That wasn't a sitar, don't have those exotic world instruments yet. Had to make do with a steel guitar that I played around with enough to give a hopefully eastern sound to.
Glad you took the journey Rick.
Take Care,

We are all students
....but as your music shows you are already a very advanced one Feter.
I'm very happy you enjoyed this piece.
Good to know you're familiar with Maurice Jarre. He was a percussionist and his music - especially his Arab themed work always had a powerful percussive quality. Honored that this music brings him along with the great Ravel to mind.
Thank you and
Take Care my Friend,

desert sun
made me think of a lone person out in the desert looking for relief from the sun and only seeing mirages
I like the constant rythm and the swirling horns.

A Journey to ...
I must agree with Rick & Feter a strong and enduring musical piece. I am glad you like non Western styles of music too. Excellent, TFS.
My best wishes for 2007.

Thank you Steve
I've been remiss in replying to comments of late. I apologies for taking so long for this. But I'm very happy you liked Damascus. It's got a pretty strong hook and I'm fond of it myself.
Take care my friend and hope you 07 is going well for you.
