Influences

For those insisting on knowing "Influences," all we can tell you is who some of the people we like are which have NO DIRECT BEARING on what you will hear, especially live--except on the other hand you may hear everything...

Ozric Tentacles, Shlomo Bar, Hassan Erraji, Rachid Taja, System of a Down, Kings X, Hassan Hakmoun, Rachid Taha, Bustan Avraham, Alice in Chains, Adrian Legg, Michael Hedges, Phil Keaggy, Chronos Quartet, Klezmatics, Bela Fleck,
Rapa Iti Tahitian Choir, Tuvan Throat Singing, Rabbinical School Dropouts...

And these influences for Pi: Frank Zappa. And Carl Rove.

There now. Does that help?
