Dry Sands Of The Desert

Lyrics: [none]
Music: Hart, Douglas, Khan, Hamza El-Din

An instrumental on the album "Däfos" by Mickey Hart, Airto Moreira and Flora Purim. The liner notes give the following description:

"The journey begins in the far-off deserts of Däfos, where the Tar lives. The Tar is a simple hoop drumm with a single skin. Its dry, driving, relentless, yet delicate voice, ancient and forever like the desert itself, belongs to a past not wholly forgotten nor completely remembered. A group of Tars perform a sequence of patterns derived from a traditional Sudanese wedding song as the players walk through the sound space, moving from the rear to the front of the stage and back again. Woodwind solos by Steve Douglas are electronically self-harmonized in real time."
