Following your kind offer of last year, please find enclosed
my graduation letter from SOAS. Your award will be of
great help in covering some of the expanses and I would
be very grateful to you.
I am also sending here a cassette with two of my recent
recordings. Having finished my masters research on Iraqi
music, I now dedicate my time to collecting and performing
Iraqi songs written by Jewish composers such as Saleh
al-Kuwaity and Youssef Yaaqub Shem-Tov. I also teach music
in Jerusalem, and enjoy being back here with my family.
Looking forward to your reply,
Thank you for your letter, we are glad that you received
your degree. Please find enclosed our remittance of £500
as promised. Your recordings indicate a good start and
we wish you success in that field.
Mr. Naim Dangoor.
