air on g-string while riding the bike.

so today, i was huffing and puffing through an excruciating x amount of minutes on the bike listening to bach 6 suite no.1 bwv 1007. sweetly, bach's air on g-string was my first hook up to classical music. i remember listening to the first notes on an extremly hot afternoon inside a stuffy music shop along koinange street. a rather busy nairobi street. i was immediately transposed to the strings and delight of oceanic backgrounds.strings are my favourite after the wood instruments. my first love besides the voice is the clarinet.

i reflect on the life, times and celebration of marian anderson. a fore-runner to kathleen battle. interestingly enough, there is much music by marian anderson in the library..oh well.
