For centuries women in Africa and the Middle East have used this music to cure pain in times of stress or illness. Followers of the Zar cult believe that sometimes their illnesses are caused by "red spirits" - the Zar - who use human bodies as hosts. These spirits attract attention to themselves by making their hosts sick. Only after acknowledging a spirit's presence and meeting its demands can a woman hope to attain a symbiotic relationship with her possessor --- and she discovers the identity of this intruder through a dance-induced trance. Music from Sands of Time: The Zar (www.sandsoftimemusic.com) and Rapture Rumi by Steven Flynn (www.stevenflynnmusic.com) ©1995 Wild Child Music BMI.
Correction: Neanderthal bone flute is from Slovenia - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sHy9FO... - NOT Serbia.
