Music of The Elders

There’s an ancient understanding amongst tribal elders (who are the real deal) that they as individuals have a kind of music that can be of help to each other’s children—in a way that can only be described as beautiful. We in the west have a cool indifference to this, our organisational structures having deadened the instinct to feel a responsibility—before there’s even any hint of trouble—to step into the world of our mate’s teenage son, for example. It might be an invitation to a concert, to dinner or a hunting trip and it might be the conversation of a lifetime.
