It's so nice to hear from you Wayne! As you can see, Rossy brought in the best minds to explore your whereabouts. No expense was spared! . Have a good day Dude. We'll look forward to your return when things get less busy.
Here's my contribution for today, Etta James, accompanied by B.B. King. Talk about a power house! She died last week at age 73. Her birthday was January 25. Here is "Something's Got a Hold on Me."
Loc: Lost in cyberspace.in the UK.
Oh no!! I hadnt thought about zombies for a whole week as well!! And its dark outside. And I have to go to the shop. In the dark. Past the churchyard. where someone was buried. This week. and the ground is still freshly disturbed.
Rise like lions after slumber,in unvanquishable number. Shake your chains to earth like dew which in sleep has fallen on you. Ye are many,they are few. Shelley
Good morning everyone! I've decided to share some music I've just started listening to this week. I learned about Rokia Traoré through a local guitarist and recording artist I'm acquainted with, Mick.
Rokia Traoré was born January 26, 1974, according to my Wikipedia notes. She is a Victoires de la Musique award-winning Malian singer, songwriter and guitarist. Born in Mali as a member of the Bambara ethnic group, her father was a diplomat and she travelled widely in her youth. She visited such countries as Algeria, Saudi Arabia, France and Belgium and was exposed to a wide variety of influences. Her hometown of Kolokani is in the northwestern part of Mali's Koulikoro region.
Here is her performance at the 2004 International WOMAD Festival. WOMAD stands for World of Music, Arts and Dance, bringing together many forms of music, arts and dance from countries and cultures around the world.
Griffin, that festival seems very interesting; I really like to know about folk music from any part of the world.
Hi Recaredo! How nice to catch up with you. Thanks for letting me know about your interest in international folk music. Now I understand why you enjoy Andean music when we post it. I saw some references to various festivals when I was researching WOMAD. I may have a few things I'll send you PM this weekend.
Hey Recaredo, do you have any Flamenco to share sometime soon? Some of us out here are starving for a little Flamenco, and we know you are all hoarding it in Espana! Come on Dude! Be a good sport and share! LOL.
Loc: Thunder Bay, On Canada
I have no idea what style this is considered but before I realized that I could learn piano I went through a "guitar is the next best thing stage" and wanted to learn this. (and nope I didn't learn guitar lol.)
Good morning all! I have to hit the piano hard today, lesson #2 is coming up Monday! Weeee

Thanks Recaredo and Becca I am just finishing up some chores at home. I can hardly wait to take a break and listen to these! Becca, good luck on the piano lesson. Recaredo, I thank you for sharing the Flamenco my friend!
Back to the chores for me so that I can enjoy these posts!
Wayne, I was here... I was through that window pulling weeds or something. Glad you're back. I want details. Do aliens have their own Gagaish figure?
Poor Andrew Roachford! He looks so sad! He can sing and play piano so he shouldn't feel that bad.
I love the flamenco stuff. I wish I could play guitar. I went through a phase too, Becca. We bought Guitar Hero, and I decided that I needed to learn, so I had BillyO show me a couple of chords for Institionalized by Suicidal Tendencies (I figured punkish stuff was the way to go, since the bands hardly knew more than 3 chords). I think my phase lasted 30 minutes. Electric guitars are heavy and make your hands hurt!
I also think bass guitar would be ok. Or upright bass!
