Thanks for posting that 4Eyes. That recording is amazing both for the sound of these ancient instruments and for the skill of the trumpeter.

I remember reading a story in NatGeo about how devasting the raids to the Iraq Museum were in Bagdad...they lost one-of-a-kind ancient musical instruments.  Most of them were not taken, but destroyed.

Interesting accent on the recording. Would you say he was English?  :o
