Martina’s pick ‘Lions Walk’ by Doug Carn (May Week 2)

Written by

This week’s pick is ‘Lions Walk’ by Doug Carn, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, and Adrian Younge

Imagine lions walking towards you, riding a gigantic blade of grass that beams with waves of funky jazz thumps. They’re wearing sunglasses and talk with you telepathically, inviting you to admire the pink, liquid sky with them.

Maybe it’s the beginning of the week, but I needed my brain to burst with some colour, and this seemed like the perfect song for that purpose. I don’t listen to much jazz, but it’s definitely fun sometimes. Surrendering to an order that goes beyond what the usual structures in our brain tend to cling to is something that’s great to practice sometimes, especially when we expand that beyond music into our lives.

So don’t forget to loosen it up from time to time, and let the lions guide you to the right path.

With digital fairy greetings,

Martina
