Ancient Egyptian Music

I shared this quite some time ago, but not many people were reading the blog back then. The music is a recreation of what ancient Egyptian music may have sounded like. Unfortunately, they were very inconsiderate and didn't leave any sheet music for us to find. The pictures are more lovely Greco-Roman mummy portraits like the one I shared on Wednesday.

  1. Is (are) there any ethnomusicologists specializing in period Egyptian music like unto Soeur Marie Keyrouz?

    1. Hi Terry. Unfortunately I don't know. I do have a couple CDs of music that are supposedly reconstructed from what we know of ancient Egyptian instruments and the styles of music found in that part of the world. But ultimately it's all guesswork, with a healthy dose of artistic license.
