i'm gonna say thanks again (for the 5th time as the Morroccoan (vol 5) is spot on.

I was back in Taroudant (which is miles away from Marakech but a VERY remote city built in & out of the desert... my ex & myself were 2 of 5 westerns there or was it 4... either way theres a few 1000 Morrocans & we didn't get the best of welcomes from the elders although we met a great 'student' who showed us the 'castle' like city (its completely walled with turets - so i imagine it saw a few battles i'back in the day' - the WHOLE place is a redish colour (from the dung/water/sand it is built of (and probably cattle blood - as that was (as in the UK) a common binding mixture - oh yeah and straw.. (wattle & dawb morrocan style)

So thanks for that - i was there again (seeing the music in a hash haze... hmmmmm)

I've just seen who the Label is - Celestial Harmonies


I have 2 & 3 of Sacred Ceremonies - a Buddhist collection - i cant find volume 1 anywhere! - but they're great 2

In fact when i can afford i think it maybe a label i will 'plunder' greatly

They are 1 of the FEW labels that actually put out the read deal - no western made synth rubbish.

him - that spamer...

Yeah, Celestial Harmonies and David Parson, benchmarks for the rest. Everything I have from them is obviously of a whole other level of quality.

Thanks for this series ;-)
