Azerbaijani & performed in the Israeli desert. Closely aligned to Turkey and other Turkic, Persian & Middle Eastern cultures. Somehow this belongs on this thread. "Now This Is What I Call Music" #100:

I guess muslims say there's nothing perfectly beautiful save Allah, but some music gets very close! Then again sufis find perfect beauty/Allah etc here on earth, or maybe I'm muddling things a bit. Thanks for the feedback Judith

Andan İçeru, a group who are described as 'sufi folk' but look like new-ager hippies. They make good music, and are part of an extended musical network & friendship with such great Turkish-based street groups as Alatav and Light in Babylon

So: Andan İçeru with Bilmem Nideyim

Andan Iceru are very lovely to listen to and to watch. I have noticed that extended musical networks and those connected with them are often of mixed demographics which of course (In my eyes) makes them more interesting. Thanks again, Chris.

Kara Gunes (Black Sun), a great band, also a street band in a different incarnation, and a largish venue filler in other repertoire:

Well worth listening to the two different versions with the different instruments. I often wonder if I would recognize the song as the same if I hadn't been told so ahead of time.
I really like Kara Gunes.

If this is just a sample of Kalan records, I really must pay more attention to them. It's been a long while since I've been taken by a few of songs.

(edit: I should have said '...pay more attention to them again.' They're a company I've been much interested in in the past.)
