Notes and Reflections from our Thursday Night Sing

A group of women come together to sing each Thursday night at the Freight & Salvage in Berkeley, California. These are our notes and reflections.

New songs for this week.

A gypsy friend of mine, who would travel each year from Canada to Mexico to skip the cold, taught me this song while sitting on a sunny beach.

A smooth version of a song we have been working on.

To add to our songs from the sea:

A folk song from Ecuador.  Loosely translated:  "I want you to bury me as my ancestors were buried:  In the earth, dark and a clay vessel".  I love the haunting harmonies in this version.
