Dedicated to all the Near/Middle Eastern musicians and dancers of the SCA. The goal of this page is to share resources. Primarily videos of musicians playing standards with their particular instrument. There are certain songs we all play in the SCA, share your version so they can practice along with your instrument, or perhaps dancers can get better acquainted with the tune so they can practice their moves, or know what songs to ask the musicians to play!
This version of Lamma Bada Yatathanna gives the lyrics room to breathe and adds to the soulfulness of the song
