@alex.j.nas has been practicing the Oud at home and inspiring me with music from ancient Mesopotamia. This is a rough cover and short snippet of a Sumerian poem from the “Epic of Gilgamesh” called “Enkidu and The Nether World”. Written around 2100 BC, it has been regarded as one of the earliest great works of literature. The instrument I’m playing is called a “phin” and is a type of lute that originates from Thailand. ••• Poem Translation: “In those days, In those distant days, In those nights, In those ancient nights, In those years, in those distant years, in those ancients days when all things had been created, In ancient time when all things were given their place, when bread was first tasted in the sacred shrines of the land, when the ovens of the land had been made to work, when the heavens had been separated from the Earth, when the Earth had been separated from the heavens, when mankind had been established....” -Enkidu and The Nether World #sumerianrecords #phinguitar
