Hear the music everywhere
Here is a beautiful 4-minute clip of Bobby McFerrin talking about Yo-Yo Ma going to an African village to experience and learn about their music. I would have trouble describing these ideas any better so please watch the video. It will be worth it.
Imagine the world where we always feel the music inside – that feeling that we have at festivals or on stage, that feeling of pure beauty coursing through our veins. Imagine being able to feel the music in the world, everywhere you look – the hum, playfulness and at times darkness of the natural world. Imagine everyone intertwining these inspirations into their own song and feeling ok with the changing nature of that song – realizing that stability and consistency isn’t the goal. Imagine finding the song even under what seems ugly at first – the oil spills, war and violence. Imagine being able to see the lightness beneath it all. Imagine that world.
