The Dragon blood tree is the most famous and distinctive plant of the island of Socotra. It has a unique and strange appearance, described as “upturned, densely-packed crown having the shape of an upside-down umbrella”. This evergreen species is named after its dark red resin, that is known as “dragon’s blood”.—Wikipedia
I forgot my camera so I took the pictures at the end of the day.

“This spectacular performance will give you goose bumps! The Silhouettes are a talented group of kids out of Denver and together they perform one of the most incredible shadow dances ever. To add to the awesomeness, this dance is performed to the song “Imagine” by Christian artist Kirk Franklin. You have never seen anything like this!” Check video below:

“After a shipwreck crossing the dreaded Middle Passage from West Africa, the human cargo wound up on an island intermingling with local residents, a mixture of Arawak and Carib groups. The resulting hybrid group known as the Garifuna fought British colonizers and were eventually deported en masse, deposited on the Caribbean coast of Central America and left for dead, as young Garifuna musician Aurelio recounts in his song “Yurumei” on his new album Laru Beya.”
“When Aurelio and I were talking about how to approach the arrangements for the album, we became convinced that it had to be forward looking and tear down all the barriers,” Duran reflects. “Andy allowed Garifuna artists to break free and be as creative as they wanted, free to go in any direction they wished. They don’t have to be totally true to their roots, because Andy’s work was very far from traditional music, but still clearly Garifuna.”

This video reminded me of a few “women” who could have learn from it. Besides, Ms Channing is so good that it is a pleasure to watch her, so here it goes. From “Grease” with John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. Enjoy!
I found this interesting group in World Music News Wire. Music from the Arctic.
“Tundra Songs and Musical Saws beyond the Arctic Circle: Norway’s Jienat Has You Surrounded with Arctic Echoes.”
“I’m presenting sounds that aren’t thought of as music in a musical context,” Fliflet reflects. “As far as I’m concerned, everything is musical raw material. It’s just the context that makes us think if it’s music or not. It’s not unlike Warhol’s soup can or Duchamp’s Fountain.”
