Folk music from the Muslim world

Just curious…

If I were to organize a concert of contemporary folk music from the Islamic world, would you want to come and see?

These are not famous people but very talented people – just like a small ghazal group in some kampong somewhere in Malaysia and also other seasoned small-time performers from many other parts of the world.

I’m talking about great acts from Indonesia, Syria, Turkey and many other northern African countries.

Why bring all these people in?

Because once in a while it’s just good to hear beautiful music and see the arts and culture of people from different parts of the world and we can inject and import a thing or two to enrich our own culture.

So what say you?

I am trying to get sponsors to help me out.

But if I can’t get sponsors, how much would you be willing to pay to attend a concert like this?
