Saturday evening I went to see Gilberto Gil. He performed at Royce Hall – UCLA. The performance placed me in a meditative state. This musician has been playing for more than 35 – 40 years. His catalog spans more than 50 albums. It made me yearn for a time that does not exist in my life…yet.
The music was so poetic and tranquil. The small band played non-stop for two hours + an encore of (3) more songs. It was great. I thought it was even more enchanting to know his son Bem Gil played with him. It is so important for a young man to spend time with his father. Forever they can remember this tour they are on together in life and in music. A deeper level these two will share. It’s a beautiful thing.
Everything worked out wonderfully. Our seats were easy to get to. We had seats with a great view. If possible check out some of his music. The April Giveaway will include a book, music, and something else I haven’t quite figured out yet. More goodies to come!!!
You Tube is a great resource to see him!! I can’t seem to find a way to put a video in my blog. If anyone had some advice that would be great!!!
On a Culinary Note..
There is a wonderful place on Heliotrope and Melrose in the City of Los Angeles. After the concert we went and had a wonderful meal. I had a RAW Cesar Salad and my wonderful musical mediation partner had the Jack Fruit Tacos. He enjoys these so much. I think I will attempt a RAW version. Obviously I know I can make a RAW TORTILLA… But the Jackfruit. That will be an interesting one. We’ll see….Where will I even find Jackfruit?? Anyone know about Mail Order???
