Oh, it's on.

We start with this little gem,
Rhythms of Rapture: Sacred Musics of Haitian Vodou.
Sounds very a SCARY huh?
You better believe it pal. Just look at the scary skeleton vodou guy playing
the guitar. I wouldn't look directly at him if I were you.
It's on the Smithsonian Folkways label which kind of makes you feel a little
smarter just knowing that. Track 12 employs the Sacred Eddie Van Halen finger-tapping technique.
Here's the link:

I've included a little Vodou Dance video below for your pleasure.
I'm not sure what they are so exited about, but it looks fun.
Maybe they are trying to re-fill that bottle of booze on the table.

by "local" library you mean... which library of which city?

there are a few special libraries scattered around with some amazing collections... looks like you may have found one of these?

I'll only listen to this if you promise it won't turn me into a zombie.

Just the Public Library System.
The town I live in is around 250,000 people.
No special Library. Just the Public Library.
I have found some really cool stuff there and this is all I will post.

Thanks for stopping by. Check back. I'm going to try to at least put up something every day.
