Ah, Patrick, one of your best.
 
And it reaches me just after choir practice at our little municipal arts
centre 
where my wife and I have joined a scratch group under the inspired coaching
of 
Melbourne's folky/songwriter-performer Kavisha Mazzella (see her website). 
The council has asked her to get up a 'united nations of song'. 
In the little wooden former chapel (where I used to take a writing class
till 
numbers dropped below the OK level!), a very odd lot of locals without
musical 
training are learning songs from all over. 
And rather too soon we will perform in front of an audience of our
friends...
First Wednesday evening I was the only male, but some others have joined.
Songs in Latin, Italian (Ciao Bella), Romany, Hebrew, so far...
But the exotic musical instruments are lacking - only guitar and a cute
little 
sort of bodhran.
Bound to prompt me to some verse snaps later. 
Kavisha's CDs are worldish music - she likes to say she's part Neapolitan,
part 
English, part Thai, and grew up in a cafe in Perth WA. She's off to a
folkfest 
in Slovenia shortly and someone else will take us on Wednesday evenings.
Last night there was an influx of Asian ladies, now outnumbering the 
Mediterraneans.

Max
(Tomorrow night we cross town to Brunswick to hear the great Andy Irvine, a 
regular visitor, one of my heroes, a master of the Irish bouzouki...)
