HALIM EL DABH-Xango Ka O-(Pointless music-Usa-199?)

Halim Abdul Messieh El-Dabh (Arabic: حليم عبد المسيح الضبع‎‎, Ḥalīm ʻAbd al-Masīḥ al-Ḍabʻ; born March 4, 1921) is an Egyptian American composer, performer, ethnomusicologist, and educator, who has had a career spanning six decades. He is particularly known as an early pioneer of electronic music.[1] In 1944 he composed one of the earliest known works of tape music,[2] or musique concrète. From the late 1950s to early 1960s he produced influential work at the Columbia-Princeton Electronic Music Center [3](taken from a wikipedia page  dedicated to him).
