Has anyone seen this video?

There's a better recording here as well:

The description is really interesting, the melody was deciphered from Thebean wall paintings using chironomy gestures. Whaddya think?

Em hotep Pheonix!
I really like the second version, found it haunting.

Honestly, it sounds like noise to me.  But then again, I don't have ears for music. :)  Thanks for sharing this anyways.

I had not heard that flutes had been found tuned to a pentatonic scale! That had been my guess from looking at the open-frame harp designs, and considering a civilization that had a sophisticated knowledge of geometry and practical math.

The playing is similar to reconstructions of Anglo-Saxon lyre music, so I'm not sure I'd consider it authoritative without a lot more information. Still, though, an interesting find!

Thank you for posting these!

As I am both tone and rythm deaf, I have no musical (or alas dance) ability.

I do however love both Egyptian,and Arab music in general - also Indian/Pakastani -
the sounds appeal to my hearing rather more than Western music does!
