the whole album is amazing
marrying marakesh maroccan nomad songs with english folk things

music is one

also he said that egyptians feel weird about how english are using their songs. egyptians say the songs are for festivities. i can see where it comes from.
europe has intellectualized egyptian and the like songs.
if i think about greek traditional songs, the most famous are the party - animal ones but there are also some deep melancolic ones. probably in egypt too. probably the egyptian who talked with plant had only the festicities one in his mind.

also it is amazing how the guitar came into being. it is traced back to ancient greece unlike many other things which original place of beggining was not actually greece but mesopotamia and greece took them and "bettered" them.
an amazing journey of travelling from greece to persia to arabia to spain etc and adding up mutations
