A 5 dollar bin Must buy
So I bought 9 5$ cd's on an whim and this is the one I listen to over and over. I just wish there were more ensamble pieces.

Kickass eastern music!!
High energy eastern influenced music. Lots of really cool beats in often very fast and different time signatures. I've been groovin to this one since I got it.


I enjoy this cd a lot. Great talent!
My fave are Hafla & Huseyni Saz Samai.
I would suggest this cd to anyone.
Thanks, Trina

Great dancing music, which is what I bought it for, but also great for working & driving - anytime you're moving!

The grooves on this one are intoxicating
Raquy and the Cavemen's Dust is a wild fantasy ride- with mystical moods and driving grooves.... Really high energy Middle Eastern folk and rock fusion-- Also several cool percussion pieces! This one is staying in my cd changer!


You Go Girl!
I will admit to being a little jealous... okay, a LOT jealous of the passionate percussive proficiency and just buckets full of talent and inner flame that has created this masterwork called DUST! ...And there's a pretty dynamic website to support this project to boot! Cheers & HooRAH!

varied album with middle eastern rock & folk ideas
At first I thought there were two kinds of approaches and styles on this album, one with a more middle eastern rock approach, the other more based upon compositions with middle eastern percussion. But in reality the style changes give a good variation. Neither density or simplicity take over, so the ideas merge well, making the album an enjoyable listen.
All tracks are in fact performed and arranged by a duo, with Raguy, playing all kinds of middle eastern percussion and string instruments, and Liron Pered, an Israeli drummer who played in a hard rock trio before. With Raguy he also plays electric bass, moog, electric guitar. Their cooperation works fine and creates for the ethno rock tracks a more “powerful” sound. On “Raquin” his contribution with an additional moog works on a fast middle eastern tune. My favourite heavy track is “Kurdish” with a powerful middle eastern ethno hard rock approach. Never the less the more quiet percussive duets are welcome changes. On two tracks Raguy has done some vocalisations, at “Tanan” they sound like Meredith Monk like voice improvisations on a Persian rhythm, and on “Riq duet” it is based upon Indian rhythmic vocalisations.

great drumming and strumming
This is great drumming. I like most of the tracks. I now catch myself humming them to myself.Wonderful introduction to the esoteric instruments that Raquy plays in addition to the drums. I could do without the ta=ta=takitas though.

Wendy Collings

Interesting sounds, and the arrangements really bring them out well. A good variety of pieces. It's also good to see some info about the instruments, rhythm bases, etc in the liner notes.
