MOURNING THE DEATH OF MARK LINKOUS…

I only discovered SPARKLEHORSE about two years ago….I can only vaguely comprehend the sort of depression that leads to the taking of ones own life….many good thoughts for him…


TUESDAY MUSIC

I am putting up music all week long and the theme it has is that I consider it inspirational. Of course much of the stuff I want to put up is not on Youtube..for instance.

Miriam Makeba- What Is Love

anything by Liquid Bloom from their album Shaman’s Eye…I was in Mt.Shasta in a new age store and when I first heard it…I don’t think I had ever had music affect me so deeply in a store…I asked them what the hell it was and bought it. Its like the best trance meditative music!

Steve Halpern’s Deja Blues is not on Youtube…lots of his other stuff…

Finally Jonathan Goldman!

And Erik Wollo

Karunesh!!

Damn this guy just has good videos!!

Gerald Jay Markoe


A WEEK OF MUSIC AND ART

Lucinda

Knopfler

Natalie Merchant

Mary Gaulthier!!!


JOY HARJO IS UP FOR 3 NATIVE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS

Ordinary Sparrow brought this to my attention. Poet and songwriter Joy Harjo has been nominated for three Native American Music Awards…BEST FEMALE ARTIST, BEST SONG, and BEST WORLD MUSIC! Apparently she has been nominated several times but has never won and needs people to register and vote!! The nice thing about NATIVE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS website is that they have music playing on it…just leave the window open and enjoy! I’m not overly familiar with Native American music but there are a few artists I enjoy. It’s always nice to have some new music to discover!! Of course I don’t tell people how to vote by listening you may find other musicians you prefer.

Also check out Joy Harjo’s beautiful website!! She is a beautiful writer too!!
