    If I may.....
    I've noticed a few members here like to post music that inspires them, things they listen to when enshrouded in the aura of oudh etc.
    I thought this might be a nice place to contain them and share with anyone interested, as for some of us need music like we need oudh.
    As I've just received news on the passing of Padma Vibhusan Kishori Amonkar ji, one of the greatest singers in recent Indian Classical Music history, I'll begin here.
    Floating away with this and Assam 3000.....

    Very nice idea!

    Sorry to hear about the passing of someone i am sure you loved to listen to. I was listening to what you posted and it is indeed very beautiful on many levels and thanks for sharing it.

    Mercy peace and love to Kishori Amonkar in abundance! Here is a little something that maybe she could have appreciated as well.

    Oud Royale 85 :

    Mickey Hart of the Dead created an instrument called 'The Beam' around the late seventies. It was 9 or so grand piano strings set along a long 'beam' of wood, with several pickups along the wood to capture the ambient harmonics. He would use either his hands to strike the strings or he would use a 5 inch long steel cylinder to rub the strings or strike them. He would play this during the end part of the drums segment. Most people used this part of the show to use the bathroom. To me it was like the Big Bang Theory of Ambient Music, it was beyond spiritual at loud volume.

    Wow, I remember the Dafos album. Suddenly you have me remembering The Rhythm Devils Apocalypse Now Sessions record.

    I'm pretty sure those sessions is where the 'beam' and the 'beast' (his taiko style setup behind the drumkit) were born, lots of chemicals during the making of Apocalypse Now.

    If you're interested in khyal, @Tuff , we lost one of the sub continent's greatest singers a few months ago; Ustad Bade Fateh Ali Khan.
    A huge blow for Pakistani music. This a famous composition in the very pleasant Raag Durga.
    I'm gonna go with the remnants of my OM5 vial today.

    Was in the mood for this poem this morning, and going to give Hainan 05 it's first real test spin.

    Calm way to end a most stressful day (seems to have been an intense one for many around here, as well)
    Agarwood, take me away......

    Tonight has been reserved for a good old-fashioned session of chips on coals to clear the air after a long day.

    I saw some Gnawa music back in the early 90's, Hassan Hakmoun was opening for Mazzy Star, of all bands, in a tiny club in S.F. The place was so zapped by his set, Mazzy Star could do no wrong that night. Amazing.

    My goth tends to be more ethereal, for whatever reason:

    I love DCD! I threw on what I was listening to in that moment. My tastes are pretty eclectic!

    Beautiful selection @Tuff! That record was most likely my first introduction to Gnawa when I was quite young. I bought it because I was a Don Cherry fan from his work with Ornette, and his own album Brown Rice. That must have been a strange double bill, always wanted to see Mazzy Starr. Lucky you!
