Music of the World

Listening to KPFA on the way from the naturopath to work this morning; heard this great show – “Music of the World”, which apparently runs 10am-noon. What caught my ear were some east Indian melodies, feminine vocals which glided up and down through quarter-tones that you don’t find in typical western harmony. Very nice stuff. Later on they had some American Indian chanting, a bit of Tibetan horn blowing, some fellow playing shells, all manner of very human and very real music. A pleasant change of pace in a hectic week.
