UPDATE: can anyone arrange this as a show tune? I originally heard it in my head as a show tune, but I’m musically illiterate. See the growing links list of awesome covers here.
This is inspired, and makes me love everyone. (Thank you for the tip, Eric!)
See me babble away on my current favorite subject, copyright and what’s wrong with it, over at questioncopyright.org. Here’s a sample:
Yes, the video is squished horizontally, because it was in DV format but uploaded on square pixels (I can’t wait until everyone just uses solid-state progressive-scan cameras). Also the audio is way compressed – it thoundth like I’m lithping. But the ideas come through.
The debut CD “Apti” of the Indo-Pak Coalition, my trio with Rez Abbasi on guitar and Dan Weiss on tabla, was released just a few weeks ago on the innova record label (http://www.innova.mu). We’re celebrating with shows tonight and tomorrow night. I haven’t performed as leader in New York since March so I hope that you can come.
Lots of show information after the fold:
The immensely talented Todd Michaelsen composed and performed the fabulous title track and much of the score for Sita Sings the Blues, which are now available for streaming (free) and download ($0.99) at toddmichaelsen.com. He has lots of other great music on his site too, you won’t be disappointed.
