Welcome to my regular Friday song/tune day, ladies and gentlemen, where I pick a piece of music that reflects my mood or the times, to share with you.

How about sitar and betrayal? Isn’t Anoushka Shankar brilliant?

In case you are wondering, everything is fine on the home front here.

Stay safe, everyone. Be kind to yourself and others.

Kind Regards.
Tracy.

  1. I listened/watched Anoushka Shankar play one of Ravi Shankar’s compositions just a couple of weeks ago ….
    And now, to listen/watch Bright Eyes – what an incredible collaboration between two hauntingly beautiful artists & sounds.
    A satisfying start to my day – thank you Tracy!

  2. Well Tracy, since you said it reflects your mood of the day I’m glad you closed by telling us all is well at home! What a truly sad and moving piece that was! I’m ashamed to admit that I love Nora Jones and was a big fan of Ravi but had no idea he had another daughter. WOW. What a gorgeous piece.

    1. I broke my own rule of just putting something up that I like but I was rather taken with this song. So different from other songs of its genre. I’m glad I have been on this music exploration. I’ve come across many artists that I hadn’t heard of before.
      And yes, I thought I had better make it clear that I was fine. We have enough to worry about, right? 🙂

  3. Hi Tracy;
    Fall arrived here in the arms of a rain storm that washed away some of the smoke and dust from the wild fires in California and Oregon. I enjoyed your sitar selection very well. My suggestion is a song by Rufus’ mother and aunt. ‘’swimming Song” by,Kate and Anna McGarrigle on YouTube. This song is also sung by Rufus’ father Loudin Wainwright 111.

    1. Hello there, Sid. It must be a relief to be able to breathe easily again. Glad you enjoyed the song. The “Swimming Song” is very appropriate for the times. I enjoyed Kate and Anna McGarrigle’s rendition of it. I’m partial to a bit of banjo, but, shhhh, don’t tell anyone. 🙂

    1. That is a smoke bush flower in the early evening, Suzanne. Strangely enough it was flowering in early winter. Quite odd.
      Life gets busy, doesn’t it? I usually go to one folk festival a year and OD on concerts than that’s it for me for the year. That was then ….
