La Danza Poetica #48 Travelling Light
Mixed and presented by DJ LAPKAT. We travel, this month, light. Returning to Canada—because of course, this month, we had to. It might be time for quiet and for reflection, a little window of peace to contemplate how we got here and where we might be going. So I have mixed some tracks from a lovely album by François Couture and Denis Veilleux, Carousel XXI does this contemplative work through story telling. Some beats and melodies from Rise Ashen, Flying Down Thunder, and Cris Derksen, intelligent language from Gaël Faye and Kaie Kellogg, and long-life-earned wisdom from Leonard Cohen, our very honoured ghost. Travel well, travel far, travel light.
