Egypt + interview with Mamadou Conde of Les Ballets Africains

Show Notes:
It's not just bellydancing music. In fact, we never really got to the bellydancing music. Egypt is replete with musical treasures, and we heard a few today. For a great description of instruments used in Egypt and the Midde East, see www.al-bab.com. To learn about Raqs Sharqi-Middle Eastern Dance (often called "bellydancing") see the detailed descriptions at www.spiritdancer.co.uk.
In hour two, we talked via phone (from a roadside in Montana) with Mamadou Conde of Guinea's Les Ballets Africains, which performs April 11 in Seattle and April 12 in Tacoma.

# Our cover song of the week was a cut off of Caetano Veloso's new CD of American songs A Foreign Sound, which also includes his interpretations of Bob Dylan's "It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)," Nirvana's "Come As You Are," and the ever-annoying "Feelings."
