Dark Desert Night

Description
I recently drove through a vast stretch of desert, a lot of it at night. Got me thinking about my brief visit to the Mid-East many years ago. So with my latest number here I imagined a rap video in the Arabian desert.
Even though it's supposed to be Arabian, this is actually in the Phrygian mode. Phrygian is the mode used in 95% of flamenco. I played it in the key of C here.
Anyone interested in singing or adding anything to this, holler at me. I'll send bits and pieces if wanted.

much obliged
flamenco, my musical passion, is at least half rooted in Arabic music. The rest being a combo of Jewish, Spanish, Classical, Gypsy and Indian.
Thanks for the nice words.

phrygian
pretty cool! I like that hammered dulcimer kind of sound that comes up midway through.
I'm trying to learn some scales so this will be a good reference to think about the "Phrygian".
enjoyed!

I like this song. You are totally right, flamenco music style has a deep Arab roots.Just listening your song comes to my memory the Alcazar of Toledo in Spain.
Congratulations.

I like making beats. The kind of beats I aspire to make are generally funky, dirty, spacey, and largely hip-hop or electronica related. You will also be hearing more flamenco from me, both electronic and classical, as I continue to get a better gras... [see more]
