In De Janerio, in blackest night,
Luta Livre flees the fight,
Behold Maeda's sacred tights;
Beware my power... Blue Lantern's light!

I've played some stuff from this thread that I'd never heard. Some it real good, thanks.
Here's a song from Hawaii and this one time I'm gonna ask anyone reading this to play it. This is the biggest turn-on musically since, uh what?, maybe the Dead in '67? I'd love to hear anyone's opinion of this music and message. Uplifting is putting it mildly. In concert it's a trio, often drum driven dance music, going into solo piano, guitar raves - they are all over the place. I happened to catch them in a small theatre in Honoka'a, up North, and first thing I realized was that I could understand every word. This video is Nahko by himself. I've watched several videos of him and the group and found out he is the child of a rape and seems to have done something with his life, despite the shitty start. And as he said in a video, I used to think love was some hippie bullshit...
Well this is real talk, this is nonstop.
It is looped now, tongue and mind.
Played off the sidewalk, straight to your boombox.
How it travels from ear to memory.
This is medicine, there's a message within.
And each will find it in their own time.
Well this is music, this is how I use it.
It makes you move and move the movement.
This is how I focus, knowing it's not hopeless.
But it sure starts with me and ends on a whole note.
Musical medicine, this is my healing.
For past and present, future things to come.
I see people stressin' over space and possessions
out of fear and a need for visual aids of abundance
Give me examples or something tangible.
Something I can get my hands on and find real meaning.
Where's the medicine? Well I've been searching.
And I suppose each will find their own kind.
Well everything's at stake, it makes it hard to concentrate.
And there are men who see a war and see a paycheck.
Such different programming, to live so fearfully.
Terror this and terror that, terrible reality.
There is no medicine on the television. So turn it off and turn yourself around.
And let's just face it. The world's fucking racist.
Even the most peaceful of us gets caught in the trend.
To live cohesively, is almost a fantasy.
And we ought to know it starts with humbling our egos.
What is the medicine for cultural wounding? It has it's moments, has it's melodies, has its time.
Well, I was listening to the outgoing seasons,
about climate change and some of the reasons.
When the sky opened like I'd been hoping,
and there came horses by the thousands
and there was thunder on their tongues and lightening on their minds
and they were singing this old melody from some other time.
They sang, don't waste your hate.
Rather, gather and create.
Be of service, be a sensible person.
Use your words, and don't be nervous.
You can do this, you've got purpose.

Has anyone watched it? Third time I watched it I realized that it's kinda hippie-love-folk genre, probably not all that exciting, compared with Chuck Berry or Louis Armstrong (I got lots of Satchmo), well, at least this one, Leche de Tigre (syn. for Brazilian viagra?) has three drummers and one hot lead female.
I got my brother and his wife to join us at Pahoa's Akebono Theatre (classic 100 year old building) for Leche de Tigre Saturday. Great time with plenty dancing music and plenty beautiful young things for visuals."Preparing mentally, the most important thing is, if you aren't doing it for the love of it, then don't do it." - Benny Urquidez
