Remembering Salah Dawson Miller - a.k.a. Isfa'ani Mustapha

Before there was Piranha, there were 3 Mustaphas 3.

We mourn the passing of Salah Dawson Miller a.k.a. Isfa'ani Mustapha – founding member for all things percussion in World Music's royal family from Szegerely, 3 Mustaphas 3. When they were touring Germany in the Nineteeneighties on Isfa'anis rhythms and beats with Piranha President to come, Borkowsky as their minder, the seed was ultimately planted that still keeps us going.

Salah went on to many further projects, two prominent later ones being his trio with Justin Adams and Juldeh Camerah and Les Triaboliques. As Sabah Habas Mustapha puts it best possible:

"Remembering Salah Dawson Miller who will never escape being Isfa'ani Mustapha to me; unique percussionist and human. Genial, wise, sometimes irascible but often with reason. Goodnight gentle spirit"

In deep sympathy with the Mustapha family, Piranha Arts second that emotion.
