Who gets your system and music after you are gone?
Just take out the drivers and bury me in one of my speakers (monkey coffins). 
Indian Music?
I second "Meeting by the River" on Water Lily Acoustics Label ....a collaboration between Ry Cooder and VM Bhatt. It is a facinating cross cultural dialogue between two diverse vituosos. Ry plays his steel guitar like a Sitar and Bhatt blues up hi... 
Salif Keita
Yeah, Habib Koite is amazing. I actually used to see him play in Bamako at a little club where us Peace Corps volunteers hung out. He is a very nice guy. In Mali, where Salif is from and where I had lived and/or worked for 10 years they really lik...

Mystical Performances

Mystical Performances
Ah yes, Meeting by the River is amazing. Very special indeed. If you've read my other threads, i've mentioned that one before too. Further, i would say Nick Drake did that on Fruit tree. I would also say Nina Simone did it in one live version of S...
