Flavia's Favorite Music

"Today, like every other day, we wake up empty and frightened.
Don't open the door to the study and begin reading.
Take down a musical instrument."

Jalal al-Din Rumi

what music would you like today?

Guy Davis "Chocolate to the Bone"
The mississippi blues are not dead. Here in the flesh is a real live master of the blues. Don't miss this musician either on cd. Or if you are lucky, in PERSON.

Odetta "The Essential Odetta"
My love for gospel was instilled in me by my Granny who would sing to us in the summers on the porch swing or while we canned foods for the winter-and my junior high choir teacher who was a young white man fresh out of college from the north who loved gospel and included it in our repetoire. Odetta is truly a living treasure.

Marley's Ghost "Live at The Freight"
the rich vocals and different styles of music always amaze me. I think back to the days when Danny(the baritone singer) would sing on the lawn at Jr. college and we were so young . I love the blend of gospel, celtic, and zydeco music on this cd.

Bonnie Rait "The Glow"
What can you say about Bonnie?? The blues are here to stay in this consumate master of slide guitar and vocals, I love "he winks an eye and the bread slice turns to toast!" Her music can make you henna like the devil.

Huun-Huur-Tu "The Orphan's Lament"
This is my all time favorite music for anything at all...traditional music from Tuva (a tiny republic northwest of Mongolia) is phenonmenal each singer can create more than one tone simultaneously while singing. Typically a higher register and a lower one. I am fascinated by the harmonics and the rythyms of the steppes.
