  1. Hello Amanda: I just sent you an e-mail. I am an artist and also very interested in hearing about your project documenting Islamic female sacred musicians in Morocco. Are you continuing to work on this project? Where did it leave off? Were the women interested in continuing to be documented? I look forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Amy Love
