Hope you like them.
Very cool, thanks. Having studied Arab and Turkish music before, it is surprising how strong the Turkish influence is in these pieces. I knew that Romanian and Hungarian folk songs carried a lot of traces and melodies of that type of music (there's a really interesting essay by Bela Bartok about his ethnomusicology work in Turkey, how he recognized a lot of Hungarian folk music there), but in these the Turkish sensibility is right up front, with a Roman/Slavic feel still present but taking a backseat, so to speak.
