No Protector...

This is an old Iraqi folk song called "Che Malee Walee" meaning I have no Walee. Walee means many things...it can mean in its legalistic sense -- someone in charge of, someone responsible for... and it may also mean a benevolent authority, a rightful owner....a Protector...

This wonderful improvisation is by the Iraqi artist, Oud player Omar Bashir, son of the late great artist, composer Munir Bachir.
