Sometimes life just gets you down. In my last post I grumbled a bit about life, and offered some music to provide consolation.
I’m all for the dignified, meditative, spiritually uplifting approach to dealing with life’s gloomier moments, but I must admit that the roll-up-the-carpets-and-invite-the-neighbours-in approach can also be efficacious.
Therefore, I offer this. From the crisp township rhythms with which the piece opens, through the playful part-singing towards its close, the handsome and charismatic Mr Belafonte will delight and enthral. Turn it up loud, for this is music-making at its finest.
