WM063: Various Artists - Mystic Moods
Bio: Jerusalem is a magnet for all kinds of energies. A city that draws weirdos and saints alike and where the difference between them is in the eyes of the beholder. Where the graffiti can be pure poetry. A city that eats prophets for breakfast. A cosmopolitan melting pot where French chansons, Arabic macams, Jewish soul music, Jazz, Russian and Punk mix. A polygluttonous city that has a syndrome named after it. Ofer was born here and though music and life carried him as far west as San Francisco or as far east as Ko Phangan (with a major Dutch chapter) he always comes back. It’s a kind of addiction.
Track: As you hear it's full of musical
quotes, features a Jaw harp (Jews harp) and was recorded as part of
a 22 song cycle of which 72 copies were released in memory of Ofer's
father Gideon in the tradition of saying Kaddish. A variation on how
musicians bury their dead (dad).
