Description

Set against the backdrop of the 2014 Scottish referendum, Monsoon on the Fingers of God continues an ongoing exploration of forms and improvisation on styles, rhythm/taal, and raagic moods in an examination of identity, history and human migrations.

Monsoon on the Fingers of God (Ravi Shankar 1920-2012)

Forgetting the guru's daughter or the first or second loves? reporters seeking out sex and scandal? third or fifth affairs or ragas; Monterey

Or Woodstock hippies, not crazies, now, setting an instrument on fire burning a hand of god, forget

Estranged and unestranged offspring loved unloved, forget all but this thing lotused from Saraswattie's vina* teardrops or raindrops

Monsoon on the fingers of god
