An experiment in collaborative scholarly authorship

Please contribute capsule reviews for your favorite CDs, representing the following regions of the ME, North Africa, and Central Asia. Please limit the review to a single paragraph, as follows:

  1. Very briefly (2-4 sentences), name and describe a musical domain, providing whatever background information you deem appropriate; optionally, include one or two important references.
  2. List one or more CDs documenting this domain, providing full publication information, plus a few sentences of commentary, for each, including: (a) 1-3 sentences sentence describing CD contents in general terms; (b) 1-3 sentences of critique.

Focus on CDs which would best enhance an introductory Middle Eastern and North African studies course: CDs should all be in print, readily available, and notable for their scholarly quality (notes, sound, or--ideally--both).
