PM'ed you.

- Ah, dont get me started its fascinating stuff..
interestingly, 'tropoi' as in modals and 'ragas' is equivalents to 'ways' and 'roads'.. Very much similar in intention which is ways or 'roads to get from one note to its higher / lower unison. Lute / Oud players in the Cyclades can be amazing, especially the elder ones..

Try finding some athens based jazz-groups, dont remember names but some do this crossover work heavily based on modals and its quite good, very distinctive sound.
You d be well into them i recon.
