>Whew. Finally made it back to Seattle after a great trip back to the ‘burgh. I got to hit up my friend Nathan’s, who basically has a recording studio in his basement, where I listened to him, Isaaaac, Cook, and Woj jam out. They are putting together some really great stuff and I can’t wait until they finish the recordings and get the legal stuff finished so I can push it out here.
Anyway, Woj and I were messing around on some of Nathan’s congos and he got to beating out Tunak Tunak Tun, which I had never heard, so he politely shared. Quite ridiculous…….ly fantastic! After we’d indulged in Delar Mendhi for a bit, Nathan (really just a super musician himself) pointed us to Niyaz. Perhaps they have the subcontinent connection, but that’s about it. This song, sung in Urdu, is gorgeous and I can’t get enough of the intro. The mystical sound produced by that guitar/cello-ish instrument is mesmerizing. Hope you enjoy too
