We miss you! Stay safe!
The world has been turned tipsy turvey these days, leaving us all outside of our normal rhythms. We want you to know that we are fine, and our only concern is you! Stay safe. Follow directions from the helpers! And remember to look out for those around you who may be needing your light and love.
Notes from the Studio
No excuses! The idea that we are too busy to record our music has become an invalid excuse.
When you have a home studio and are under a state stay-ar-home order, it’s time to finish up an album. We will start with our musical take on our river trip on the middle fork of the Salmon River. Watch for Poet of Stones to emerge!.
A poem, originally written by Karen Weed, became a collaboration after she sent me the words in search of a tune. She then forwarded it to Jim Ankan Deka and a team of creatives to create the final recording and video.
Assam Skies depicts the life and relationship of an English tea planter and Rampiyari, a young tribal girl from the tea gardens of Assam. This is a true story based in the era of colonial rule in India. Rampiyari died of a broken heart when her two children were taken away from her and put into a home for orphans in Assam. It was the same year when their father married his English wife.
