AllMusic Review by

The Sufi brotherhoods -- in Turkey especially -- acted to preserve classical forms during the period of Westernization (lines between Sufi and classicla music are as blurred as with their European equivalents). This release is devoted to maqamaat for ney (accompanied by percussion) ranging from the 18th to 20th centuries. There are good notes in all cases.
