Re: Tunisian afternoon, at home in Madrid (Spain)
Funny, I assumed that you to be a Tunisisian in Spain rather then a Spaniard in Tunisia. Anyway, I make it to Tunisia about 4-6 times a year but it's always on business so my free times in'st that great. As to the country, well I like most of it but not Tunis. While I like classical instrumentalist from Arabic countries and I play some as well my language skills suck to much to ever learn Arabic. Although I appricate Arabic culture as best I can I am an Occidental and proud of it. Tunsisia has much to commend it in terms of food, hospitality, craftsmanship and tobacco but musically I much prefer the folk and court instrumental material that gets so little attention any more. It really is a shame that all the great narghile related stuff from Tunisia never gets exported.
