A group formed to combine Arabic, Turkish and Balkan rhythms together with some influences from Jewish music.

After many years of playing the Ney in a classical Arab music group and clarinet in the klezmer group 'Yiddish Tanz Riyvivale', I decided that I was more interested in merging the various elements into one type of music. This has produced an interesting fusion which, at times, sounds like something between Soft Machine and Sharkiat. I have included some original compositions in the repertoire and transcribed others from taped sources which I had collected whilst travelling or from recorded archives. This group has also been heavily influenced by the work of Chris Speed, Brad Shepik and, Matt Darriau.
