I can’t remember when or how I stumbled upon Leyla McCalla. I believe it was on Youtube. Bouncing around as you do…
I am so glad that I did. This lovely lady from New Orleans just pulls at my heart. There is something so beautiful, so ephemeral in her work. Such an incredible talent.
I love this tune, this evening. Living in L.A. can sometimes whoop you out. I find that the city and its inhabitants can really give you a good dish-up of daily jostle.
Yet, it is amazing how much of my time is spent alone.
And tonight, as I move about my apartment, I am noticing this solitude. Paired with the sounds of people above, below and beyond me. It is a sure lot to take in.
Good night, kids. Sleep tight.
Ps. Thought you might like a bonus video of the gorgoeus Ms. McCalla. Heck, it’s my pleasure. Enjoy. !
