God Bless the Ottoman Empire

Song of the day - A Hawk and a Hacksaw ~ God Bless the Ottoman Empire

From Albuquerque, New Mexico, this band is inspired by Eastern European, Turkish and Balkan music and is evident upon listening to this tune. The name of the band came from a reference from Don Quixote which was referenced from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, " I am but mad north-north-west: when the wind is southerly I know a hawk from a handsaw." Lovely!

That's some fun music, I just need a fez, hookah, dancing girl and I am set.

Ha! Although he's not here to defend himself, from what I understand Chris K. is the hook up for all such things.
