RE: what music are you listening to now
Had the pleasure of seeing this guy play live with Intervals (posted some songs not long ago), if you like guitar then that's for you (centered on it, so if you don't it's literally not for you)




A simple act of forgiveness, opens the door for the best.

Things2Do Today: Think Of One, Sing Truth To Power, Tango Freely, & Keep Banging Away
~





Qiyan is the plural of Qaynah: a slave woman who masters a job. Qiyan is an Arabic term denoting the cultured
slave-women of varying ethnic backgrounds who had been trained as singers/dancers/musicians/poets to entertain and
entrance caliphs and other high officials at the Muslim courts in former times.  These women, highly prized for their arts,
served in this role in ancient Arabia and in the medieval Península Ibérica (España and Portugal, Al Andalus https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Al-Andalus )
and were responsible for performing and spreading the works of the composers  of the period. As the Christian warlords
conquered more and more of the Muslim territories in Spain, i.e. al-Andalus/Sepharad, qiyan were captured and taken
back to the courts of Europe as booty.

"The first troubadour", William of Aquitaine (969 - 1030), grew up among qiyan and was surely influenced by them.
The troubadour movement which started in Provence contributed to spreading their influence to the rest of Europe, as
these travelling musicians moved from court to court. 

The kind of love-&-longing songs heard here were sung variously in Old Spanish, Hebrew, Ladino, Arabic, and other
languages, reflecting the eclectic cosmopolitan cultural mix in a civilization whose Sufi-influenced authorities not only
allowed but positively protected the observation of religious belief systems (Christian, Jewish, and Muslim, predominantly,
though others of even pagan nature were allowed to carry on if evidencing no evil intent) in an enlightened way that
promoted a form of amicable coexistence that has not since been seen on our increasingly societally-fragmented and
"triggerized"/polarized planet. For some lyrics, see http://www.qiyanskrets.se/lyrics.htm .

E.g., (at 26:33) "Mi Yitneni Of" ("That I Had Wings", a traditional Sephardic Jewish song):

Mi yitneni of tzi por kanaf k'tana!         That I had wings like those of a little bird!
Habindude en sof nafshi ma mitana,      I wander endlessly to find shelter for my soul,
Ah, bindud en sof nafshi ma mita!         Oh, I wander endlessly to find shelter for my soul!      















Cool

The Drum of the Realization

The drum of the realization of the promise is beating; 
     we are sweeping the road to the sky.

Your joy is here today --
     what remains for tomorrow?

The armies of the day have chased the army of the night, 
     Heaven and earth are filled with purity and light.

Oh! joy for he who has escaped from this world
     of perfumes and color!

For beyond these colours and these perfumes, 
    there are other colors in the heart and the soul.

Oh! joy for this soul and this heart who have escaped 
     the earth of water and clay,

Although this water and this clay
     contain the hearth of the philosophical stone.


Drumsound rises on the air,
     its throb, my heart.

A voice inside the beat says,
     "I know you're tired, but come. This is the Way."

Play for your life, and maybe -- just maybe -- they'll let you live!:




Mohr relates his experience with the Yezidi-chalk-circle-like* mental prison he encountered 
when trying to escape an unexpectedly labyrinthine "maze":



* George Gurdjieff wrote about his encounters with the Yezidis (an ancient religious minority
in northern Iraq and the Caucasus) several times in his book Meetings with Remarkable Men
(London & NY: 1963), mentioning that they are considered to be "devil worshipers" by
other ethnicities in the region. Also, in P. D. Ouspensky's book In Search of the Miraculous
(London: 1947), he describes some strange customs that Gurdjieff observed in Yezidi boys:

"He told me, among other things, that when he was a child he had often observed how 
Yezidi boys were unable to step out of a circle traced round them on the ground." (p. 36)
Berthold Brecht's 1948 play The Caucasian Chalk Circle alludes to this phenomenon.

It's so easy to get a little too personally invested in some group & their work, no?:




Here's a little sonic treat I indulge in when I need to snap out of whatever musical (or other) groove I'm stuck in. 
Mary Halvorson's a gal after my own black heart -- her psychic-space-exploring tunes, which she plays using her own 
mindmeltacious guitar stylings, always work like a charm in defragmenting the ol' mind-patterning & reorienting 
the condition my condition is in.

Hey Cyanicca, have you checked out Boiler Room? More primo techno/DJ stuff than you can shake a stick at!
Dig, for instance, 32:00 & following in this set:

As a mere whippersnapper watching the original run of the wonderfully bizarre Addams Family TV series ('64-'66)  
I had a crush on this dark-souled vixen -- oh, the siren call of these sultry Older Women, you know! (Lisa Loring is

"Saints Preserve & Protect Us. . .
~ ... we've been drinking whisky before breakfast!" -- American lyrics to old Irish fiddle tune
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4JVLu8uEfY

Did just that this past weekend. I also had it for breakfast. Very spiritual experience in the midst
of a three-days' savage craic -- o th' head o' me, 'tis shtill throbbin' fit f'r war-dhr-rums: hence this
belated tribute to St. Patrick's Day.

[Image: 1950s_here_s_a_toast_to_when_i_want_it_thumb.gif]

Forget NASA's show-off astronauts -- this is the Right Stuff.  https://whiskeyclub.com/2017/10/28/redbreast-21/

[Image: menpants_4-9f4e4e23ebdr8a08485d5b959b0162266.jpg] Proper traditional attire is key if you want to
get into the best low Celtic dives.


As prophesied long ago by the ancient Afro-Celt seers, ya booty shall be brought4th!




And lo! it came to pass. And this is what you get:



(Dee-Lite-Drops-A-Few-Tabs-Of-Lords-of-Acid, a very popular trad-Irish genre)

Meanwhile across the pond on the Emerald Isle, the jig is up, and Damhsa ar an sean nós
(Old-style dancing) runs riot in the streets:



Note: No bawdy jokes premised on the double-entendre use of the word "tap" will be countenanced.
Especially from hoboes under the influence of Sterno -- that's right out.

Beannachtai Na Feile Padraig Oraibh! (St. Patrick’s Day Blessing Upon You!)

Saint Patrick was a gentleman, he came from decent people
He built a church in Dublin town and on it put a steeple
His father was a Gallagher, his mother was a Grady
His aunt was an O'Shaughnessy and his uncle was a Brady
Success to bold Saint Paddy's fist he was a saint so clever
he gave the snakes and toads a twist and banished them forever.

No wonder that them Irish lads should be so gay and frisky
Sure Saint Patrick taught them that as well as making whisky
No wonder that the saint himself should understand distilling
His mother had a shebeen shop in the town of Enniskillen

A recent update on a ca. 14th-c. Irish children's song, Englished from the original Gaeilge:



(. . . that selection from the best album of the best Irish band evarr to grace God's Own Land: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LT81AkyLveg&list=RDLT81AkyLveg&t=64
Those curlish enough to disagree -- may a grizzly gray cat eat 'em and may th' divil eat th' cat! --
will step outside and I'll take a shillelagh to them and their brother's cabbages --
and may they live to marry wenches that blow wind like stones from a sling!)
A contemporary Irish band with killer chops & spirit in the tradition: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67HYCMLJlQo

in the greenfields of America:

...A bit later in that process we have the 80% Irish-ancestry singer/songwriter/guitarist Annie Erin Clark
(here with her debut EP, recorded at age 20 as a student project while she was at Berklee -- which she later dropped
out of, the slacker! That's no way to make good!) who took as a performance-name the very Irish Roman Catholic "St. Vincent":
