Sulyman el Coyote Sulyman was one of the founding members of the '60s band "Kaleidoscope". He plays masterful oud, zurna, diabolical violin, gypsy cumbus, is ethereal on the ney and is a powerful vocalist. What can we say about his expertise on saz, kanoon, mizmar, arghool, clarinet, and Flamenco guitar. Sulyman also handcrafts and sells the very best tuned zills and creates very unique silver jewelry.

Armando Mafufo, (Uncle Mafufo) is a melodic doumbek player and a master of shading and textures on the drum. He enjoys playing the traditional Middle Eastern instruments nakara, tabl beledi, and an assortment of Middle Eastern frame drums. Armando plays tabl beledi (the big drum) for a powerful tribal style performance with Sulyman on the mizmar. Uncle Mafufo has produced five CDs of his solo compositions in addition to his very popular series of Rhythms/Techniques for Doumbek, Riqs & Defs and zills on DVDs and CDs.
