Very fascinating.
I did listen to all the 3.
You know what?
I'm sitting here with the same positive mood.

In some ways all the songs and melodies do have some basics common, also to Irish music. I not able to explain how, but they all put me in the same mood.

btw. Last week, after the Vernissage in Essen, we danced to Tukish music. That was fun.

Exotic. Didn't know about the dulcimer. I looked at Vikipedia. Wish I could try it...Azam Ali has a velvety voice. Le Serpent Rouge is hypnotic. Really nice, Jams. Different (for me!)Thanks!
