7)  David Kuckhermann.

The current Dead Can Dance touring group includes the extraordinary David Kuckhermann. At some of the shows David also provides the support act and, if you get the opportunity to catch this, please forsake your position in the bar queue and run into the auditorium.  He is such a brilliant Arabic percussionist that he has taught master classes in Palestine and Tunisia – an honour almost unknown to be bestowed on a European. When he performs a solo on the riqq (Arabic tambourine) you could close your eyes and imagine there is an entire orchestra playing – incredible!
