This piece is one we've been playing for almost as long as the band has been performing. It's a melody we originally heard on a recording by Afghani musician Aziz Herawi, recorded live at a house concert in Calirfornia in 1992.
The rhythm is in 7 beats, with pauses at the end of passages where traditionally dancers would freeze in position. We loved that idea -- a "musical freeze tag" -- and have fun with it every time we play the song.
