A top Somali lawmaker closely associated with the recently ousted Islamic movement was voted out as speaker Wednesday by parliament, a move that could undermine reconciliation efforts in the restive country. Deputy Speaker Osman Ilmi Boqore announced that parliament voted to strip Sharif Hassan Sheik Aden of the speaker's position. Lawmakers cited his public criticism of a proposed African peacekeeping mission that parliament had endorsed and his meetings with Islamic movement leaders without authority from parliament. Michael E. Ranneberger, the U.S. ambassador to Kenya, told reporters in the Kenyan capital Wednesday before the vote that Aden was "the kind of person who could pull people together."(© AP Images)

Caption: Kantara’s origins lie in the Maghreb city of Tunis, where lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Brennan Gilmore met oudist and composer Riadh Fehri in 2005. Two strangers from half a world away brought together by circumstance found something shared in the rhythms and recollections of their past. Together the two have worked to create a unique synthesis of two distinct musical traditions, those of Appalachian bluegrass and old-time and traditional Tunisian music. The intersection of these two traditions leads to a third path, not yet walked, where the melodies of the Scots-Irish seeking a new life in the Americas meet the musical tradition of Iberian Muslims expelled during the reconquista of Spain and Portugal.
