Foreword by Bob Ziller
Here are the postcards of two travelers in the land of Love.
You’ll recognize some of these cities, snapshots of Longing, Fear, & Comfort.Other places may startle you … like the port of Courage, just past the straits of Lust …
here we see the Bridge of Trust from a unique angle … and the cliffs of Desire,
overlooking the hills of Fulfillment … here, over a field of wildflowers,
a pair of butterflies with paper wings circle each other … whispering …
and this is what they are saying …

Mangrove Compilation - a musical journey

MKL

For those of you who may remember my stint with the Afro-Brasilian House music project, 3 Generations Walking, DJ MKL presents a beautiful compilation to satisfy! The recently released Mangrove compilation features a song I did with my band Soma Mestizo and many other delicious grooves.

As DJ/Producer describes it:
One minute you could be in a bar in far flung colonial outpost, watching a brown
skinned beauty shake her well toned limbs to the ethno (French, Spanish, Afro)
trumpet laced percussive grooves of “To Dub”, while the next sipping an
overpriced drink with beautiful types in Paris to the minimalist electronica of “En
Jaguar Beige”.

Pack your passport, your sunglasses and dancing shoes and prepare for a
musical journey!
