Grind OM 14

I continue to be loyal to the Grind. I played a longish set of new material and Nim classics, late in the evening, after watching Genghis Blues with Scott, a movie about a blind San Francisco blues singer who travels to Tuva (a region just north of Mongolia) to participate in a Tuvon throught-singing competition. Tuvon throught-singing is an impressive and skilled art of allowing the natural harmonics of the voice to ring out. It is subtle and nuanced, and totally different from Western singing styles. An inspiring and fascinating documentary.

At the Grind, I played:

.. fly this kite
.. candle bird
.. love song 5
.. 25% more monster [request] > vegetables you've never heard of
.. 5 songs of fish
