From Colorblind James to D’Gary, from New York State to Madagascar – all in thirteen steps. I have posted from D’Gary’s Malagasy Guitar album before and this week I have chosen a track called Raininy. It is not raininy (sorry, I couldn’t resist) here as I post, in fact it is clear if cold, but tomorrow I fear we will wake to heavy rain which will continue through the morning and some of the afternoon. A day of cooking and indoor jobs is called for methinks.
And, a coincidence, this morning I ordered a The Rough Guide to the Music of the Indian Ocean which includes music from Madagascar, though no D’Gary, along with music from Mauritius, La Réunion and Zanzibar. It should be good. (I’ve also ordered The Rough Guide to English Folk which includes quite a few tracks / artists that I don’t have in my collection. Well you have to make up your Amazon order with music if you are buying clothes moth traps – don’t you?).
