Thread Name: BS: Why no new Iraq thread?
Subject: RE: BS: Why no new Iraq thread?
All this time has gone by, billions & billions of $$, countless lives lost--but only once did I hear anything about Music in Iraq. That was on "Sunday Morning" the CBS show. It was a piece about what remained of the orchestra in Baghdad. I have never seen or heard any reports of the peoples of Iraq and their traditional Music(s). I suppose the average USA tv viewer would not pay much attention? Nevertheless, wouldn't it be something to have Traditional Musicians from round the world making Music with Iraqui Musicians-& put it on tv & radio worldwide? Since the usual diplomacy hasn't worked yet, how about International Music Diplomats?
