Here's a little tune I made in around an hour. Maybe you could use it for a menu theme for some Egyptian-ish game or something.

This uses East/West for all of the sounds you're hearing minus the choir and drums, where the choir is Magnus Choir and the drums are downloaded drum samples. The melody at the beginning sounds familiar, I don't know why. Also, if there are any discordancies, tell me, I'm not so experienced in music and don't know how to harmonize at all.

This song is both Hip-Hop and Ambient; Hip-Hop because of the Hip-Hop style drums, and Ambient because of the long notes with powerful and deep background depth. I think this shifts more towards the Ambient side, though - if you disagree, tell me. Sorry for making it so short - I can't stand making Ambient songs because they're so darn boring to make IMO, and besides, this is aimed to be used in a flash, not to be a full song. Anyway, if anyone wants to use it in a flash, you don't need to ask permission, but it'd be cool if you credit me in the flash's credits or something. I uploaded it with a lower bitrate than usual to make the filesize more flash-friendly.
Anyhow, thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoy it! Please vote and comment: I'll respond to all reviews and review back if it's helpful.
