Short documentary style movie featuring Martin Hayes and Dennis Cahill.  They performed with muscians from the India folk tradition and discuss the things that brought the trip about.

@ABitRusty -

Thanks for pointing out Hunting the Squirrel. 

The tune sounded familiar, but I was totally consumed by the singing. 

Most music of India is composed to be sung, so makes sense. 

 

...the story of Myles, the film maker, was eye opening - thought everyone knew that was a potential problem with antibiotics.

This is a neat tune--I just printed it off the session so I can learn it. smile

Haven't had a chance to watch the video above yet, but I will--looks interesting--

@SharonC its pretty simple and moves keys easy.  just a great tune the way he plays it... and in general

 

the easiest and mesmorizing way to do it is to just put that track on repeat and play along with it.  Youll find the notes quick..but I think he has stepped down to Bb.   Love it.

Just watched the documentary--great video! It's refreshing to see people sharing music & with people listening with their families.
