Music & Poetry of the Kesh

This cassette is included in Ursula Le Guin's novel Always Coming Home, which is about a valley people called the Kesh "who might be going to have lived a long, long time from now in Northern California." The cassette features music by Todd Barton and serves as a kind of anthropological primer on Kesh music and poetry. Very, very beautiful tape, well worth seeking out. Support Barton by buying here. One of these songs is on Spencer D.'s awesome new mix!

The Girl From the South

By the brilliant Richard Woolley in 1988. This movie made me buy a walkman! She is closing her eyes and listening to Elgar.
