Wednesday, March 17th
sounds of India
This I could listen to all day.
Sashank Subramanyam and Rakesh Chaurasia (flutes), Anubrata Chatterjee (tabla), Patri Satish Kumar (mridangam), live (Rag Hamsadwani), India (Velliangiri Hills), 2014
yesterday, Oak Park, Ill.
Not yet disappeared
like a dewdrop
on a blade of grass,
I am still in this floating world,
moon in the morning.
—Ryokan (1758-1831), translated from Japanese by Kazuaki Tanahashi
