Look no further for that unique multicultural programming gem - Gilpin's setting of this Middle Eastern folk song is bright, fun and flirtatious! The text, in classic Arabic, tells the story of a traveling salesman selling Indian muslin, taffeta and other pretty material and wares for women to purchase. The Arabic is repetitive, easily learned, and helps fuel the rhythmic feel of the melody and overall style of the piece. A pronunciation guide and translation are provided, along with helpful performance notes.
