The magic of music, from Mali

Friday was a long, exhausting day. Today when I got out of bed, I looked at my posting for yesterday and noticed that when I put up the links, I had forgotten to put up a link on Oz Fritz's post about his recent trip to Mali, which y'all should go read.

No one explores the link between music and magick better than Oz; I have just enough African music in my music collection to know that I probably should have more, but Oz is an expert. (I kind of have a little bit of every kind of music, but a lot of classical.) Be sure you take a moment to watch the video trailer for the movie about music in Mali that Oz is working on.

Bonus link for people who like to read: Today only, Babel-17 by Samuel R. Delany is $2 for Kindle.

Thanks Tom, I really appreciate it.

There's a great piece touching upon magick and music by Burroughs when he interviewed Jimmy Page for Crawdaddy magazine. I linked to it in my latest blog, or a google search will pull it up.
