Book:
The rich and varied folklore of the Druze has long attracted specialist scholarly interest. The present publication by the Druze Heritage Foundation, however, Music in Druze Life: Ritual, Values and Performance Practice, is the first to document the role music has played -- and continues to play -- as an accompaniment to traditional life and an important factor in the shaping of the Druze lifestyle.

Music in Druze Life and the accompanying CD are the product of this distinguished collaboration, and the Druze Heritage Foundation is indebted to Professor Racy and Dr. Hood for the immense effort and knowledge that has produced an outstandingly beautiful work.
