LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he Fez Festival of World Sacred Music is a week's worth of art and music, all dealing with notions of the sacred. It is the mecca of so-called "world music."

Plus, a look at the legacies of Skip Spence and Captain Beefheart, profiles of Dutch guitarist Teye and The Make Up, and more.
