I haven't listened to Sweet Honey in the Rock in ages. Love them. One of the singer's daughters grew up to be an excellent artist in her own right, founder Bernice Johnson Reagon's daughter Toshi Reagon. Although I never did see Sweet Honey (had to cancel on a concert in Tokyo unfortunately), I did see Toshi perform at a brilliant Canada Day night in Central Park, NYC in 1999 where the consulate put on a tribute performance to Joni Mitchell.

"Joni Mitchell made an unscheduled guest appearance at an all-star concert honoring her 1970s "jazz period" in New York's Central Park on Thursday (July 1). She took the stage with Chaka Khan, Duncan Sheik, Joe Jackson, Eric Andersen, Jane Siberry, Toshi Reagon, PM Dawn, Ravi Coltrane, and many others for the closing number, "Help Me."

Producer Danny Kapilian described the event, Joni's Jazz, as "not a tribute concert in any real way. This is a celebration of a very specific period of music in Joni Mitchell's career." Presented as a part of Central Park's SummerStage outdoor concert series, it was threatened by the hissing of Central Park lawns -- a steady rain that ceased just minutes before the concert's start...

Mitchell was coaxed onstage for the closing number "Help Me." Cigarette in hand, she said, "I'm really speechless. I can't begin to describe the way I feel... I'll remember this all my life -- all my long life. With the stage crowded by all participating artists, Mitchell seemed reluctant to take the lead vocal away from Chaka Khan, who prompted her with, "Joni, sing. Sing, girl." Finally, Mitchell offered a few choruses of ethereal, wordless vocal lines to a swaying crowd that could not have adored her more."

It was one of the best nights of my life!

I've been very much enjoying the low volume chill funk stylings of Vulpeck lately, a new discovery for me.

We have a guest visiting and he has been digging up some old albums to play on the turntable. Lots of Genesis and old Fleetwood Mac. Plus just awhile ago, Harmonium.

Harmonium is a band I have not heard in ages. If you have CANO play it for them.

Osman Kavala and the Snails: watch, enjoy, share

The world’s first lockdown opera, ten minutes of delight against oppression

quote:

In one country there is an injustice that symbolises the contest between hateful, polarising, elected despotism and truth and justice. The jailing of Osman Kavala in Turkey.

Kavala is Turkey's best-known supporter of culture. A philanthropist, human rights champion and bridge-builder to minority communities he has spent his whole life working for equality and respect for repressed peoples. He stands for the democratic and tolerant beliefs of probably now a majority of the population.

For this he is approaching 1000 days in Turkey’s highest security prison on trumped-up charges on the orders of President Erdoğan.

2 percent - Guri Lahoria & Asal Sach

Not a fan of the hip hop style tune, but the imagery & message delivery is too powerful.

Interesting. Can you supply a synopsis of the lyrics in English?

I was treated to a surprise date while in St. Pete's, Florida 5 years ago and it was a Santana concert with Carlos' daughter joining him on stage. It was an excellent performance and the Mahaffey Theatre (Center for the Arts) was a beautiful venue.

..i saw santana a few years ago at the gorge theatre. it's a concert stage south of osoyoos in washington. it overlooks a gorge and at the bottom runs the columbia river. i owned a volkswagon van at the time. :)

That looks amazing, Epaulo! I love destination outdoor concerts - I've done a few ski hill outdoor concerts in the Gatineaus (Camp Fortune) and Vermont (Stowe).
