Here’s another homespun video, this time with some wordless song. For you musicians interested in such things, I’m playing in a “mixed mode” — the bottom half is our Major scale — do-re-me-fa — and the top half is Aeolian (a minor scale with the sixth and seventh steps flat) — so, a minor over Major mode. My scale here is D-E-F#-G-A-Bb-C-D.
Here’s a little about “Casa De Los Viejos“:
Bardic harper and storyteller Joan Almond shared a story with me that she wrote in which a wanderer arrives at a house of the ancestors called “Casa De Los Viejos”. In this vignette all the voices of the ancestors become distilled by way of a drop of nectar on the wanderer’s tongue into one voice, her voice, her Soul and she begins to sing in a language lost to this world ….
May you hear the voices of the ancestors distilled into your one true voice. May you sing with your Soul in each day of your life the language this world must know once more ….
