Just joined in... Whatever is on now is some trance-inducing fusion/mash/olio of sonics! "Jajouka Pipe Dream" i presume (~13:45)?!

I was driving listening to your show when I heard someone that sounded a lot like a Tajik musician I made a short film about 15 years ago called Falak, Song of the Soul. I don't see him on your playlist but his name was Aziz Sabzaliev. I'll have to listen to the show again to see who it actually was - probably Huseyin Eroglu I'd guess, but in case you're interested the film is here: https://vimeo.com/35403923
