chef free Posted September 29, 2014 Share Posted September 29, 2014 I was just now driving home from work, listening to the radio. I had the radio tuned to a local college station because I like a lot of musical variety, it was a show featuring Middle Eastern music which was reminding me of Kashmir. When the music ended and the DJ started talking, I switched to the local "classic rock" station and what song started in? Kashmir of course! This kind of thing always seems to happen to me, weird coincidences that are so meaningful often around music. Carl Jung called these events synchronicity. After Kashmir ended I switched back to the college station and the music sounded so much like Kashmir! I thought, "I can really hear the Middle Eastern influences on Led Zeppelin!" As the song progressed it sounded more and more like Kashmir, finally I realized that it WAS Kashmir, arranged for cello, oud, drums, and other acoustic instruments. It turned out to be a version of Kashmir by Maya Beiser on cello, from her album Provenance. (Provenance means the place of origination, maybe a little more synchronicity!) The "official" video is here:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6KMcwR43FE But this sound check is much cooler and twice as long: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDhc4hmfeIc Check it out! Do you ever experience synchronicity (especially around Led Zeppelin)? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
