- daddy yankee on bhangra:
"I love the Indian culture. I like the Punjabi sounds. I love the Bhangra genre. I consider India very rich in culture, rich in rhthyms. It’s like the Carribean you know? Indian sounds is incredible, like Reggaeton. I don’t know what Indian's aresaying. But I love the music and the drums."
- hank shocklee on life in the bush of ghosts:
"I grew up as a David Byrne fan. I admired his work with Talking Heads and those records then led me to 'My Life In The Bush Of Ghosts' where I discovered Brian Eno's work. The collaboration between Byrne and Eno inspired me to think outside the box and opened my head up to new musical and most importantly non-musical experiences." (see also.)
- speaking of eno, don't miss geeta's tasty post on the man and his methods. or simon's post on culture/pleasure that pointed me there. (see also.)
