Various - Open Strings: 1920s Middle Eastern Recordings (Honest Jon's, 2009)
Compilation with great Arabic music and modern music that is inspired by this old Arabic music.
From the modern pieces specially Sir Richard Bishop, Six Organs of Admittance and Paul Metzger seem to impress me most.
Really recommended box both on 4x LP or 2x CD available (I got the vinyl box). Only shame is that there is no nice booklet with the collection telling us a bit more about the music.
