Improvisations from Nineveh - Iraq.

I can't bear listen to anything in English these days, even though am typing in this language...
I found this great youtube video of the late Munir Bashir improvisations on different Iraqi folk songs from Nineveh - Mosul and its surroundings.

The video was originally uploaded by IraqiMaqam. A rich and interesting blog on the origins and modes of Iraqi music
