Cool
I like this. Cool piece full of movement. Does get a bit repetitive, though,
and I can't help thinking some words would work well with this. Very nice!

Dance party at the oasis!
This is a fun little jam. Someone posted "Dude where's my cobra" above and I think they have a point - it sounds like a snakecharmer or something.

The percussion is richly layered. The tablas really pull you through as well as the tamborine and whatever the other drums are. THe way they come in in steps in the beginning is nice.

In my opinion, the didjeridoo loop is a little out of place. That isn't to say that it couldn't work but it's just not the world's best didj loop out there (especially for creating the background drone effect). I think there are some better ones in Jam Pack 5.

I commented on another song of yours that in absence of an over-arching melody line, the high-pitched part of the rhythm track gets interpreted as a melody. Again with this song, a strong melody line would help the fact that it sounds a little repetitive.

Also, once you have a separate melody line, you can play with the structure so that the dulcimer rhythm doesn't have to repeat in every section of the song.

P.S. I like how you used the two Dulcimer loops in counterpoint in the second half.
