    I believe under Islamic belief self promotion is looked down upon. That's why you do not see any Muslim politicians in a secular government.

    But don't quote me on that.

    An acquaintance of mine, Dr. William Chapman-Nyaho is from Ghana and has a fantastic CD entitled "Senku." Dr. Nyaho is, in every sense, an astounding pianist. I don't know him intimately, but the few brief conversations I had with him yielded a charachter defined by honesty, humility and a profound musical worth.
