Hello everybody,
I am living in Berlin, Germany and playing the Alto Saxophone for several years.

During my study of computer sciences on the island Crete my love for oriental music  had been started and never stopped. As I have been together with friends  in Athens I was looking around to get a Nay but people stated I have to go to Instanbul for a Nay. Few weeks later I found a online shop driven by an Egyptian guy who is creating  their own Nays and Kavalas. His name is Marwan Hassan and he is living just 40 min away from my home.  (   Unfortunately no English version with Marwans web page   :'(

Thus I got my first Nay Doka (Re - D) and got crazy playing this instrument.  I am just a beginner with Nay but I hope to learn more. I mostly like the  combination from oriental music together with Jazz improvisation such as in 'A Night in Tunisia'.

Now I am looking forward to play the blue Kavala  8)
