Do You Like Music?

Then visit Ostaad Hassan Kassai's almost magical performance on the Ney--a Persian wind instrument. It consists of a straw (ney) with finger-holes. Ney has a unique sound (hear for yourself by listening to Master Kassai play it), signifying solitude and melancholy.

If you like that, you can buy some CDs here, on Music Box.

Thanks, Naj. That is an amazing instrument. I spent about 20 minutes on YouTube listening to the different videos of it. It seems a lot better when accompanied by the various drums. Is this the instrument the snake charmers use?

Glad you're back off hiatus.:)
