Expression through music, performance and art is one of the greatest pleasure I have experienced in my existence. Music, when performing, is freeing, uplifting and a source of truth in some way since it has the ability to lift you out of anything you are experiencing, all the self imposing issues of life and any distracting falsehoods wash away in the current of the music. Something truly pleasurable and I don’t know what I would do without it in my life.
There is nothing like seeing folks getting into the music you are playing, whether it is dancing or emotionally into it. The one thing performance requires is your heart and your entire attention, without it it just doesn’t translate. I’ve played in some places that didn’t speak English at all so the words in the music are lost and the one thing I tell myself it “pour your heart into its and they will get it” and this is recipe always translates as well as transcends.
