Courtship Dance...Robert Mirabal...Live from a 2001 PBS Concert ...Beautiful music and dancing

I cannot believe I finally was able to actually find this live PBS version on youtube!! In 2001 I turned my tv on and there Robert Mirabal was playing his flute and the lovely lady dancing...this was my first experience in witnessing the beautiful music, dancing and storytelling of Robert Mirabal. I've never been the same since. At that time I immediately ordered the PBS VHS live concert of this show,"Robert Mirabal, "Music from a Painted Cave", with "Rare Tribal Mob"..and I also got the CD. I now have many CD's of Robert Mirabal's I've acquired through the years. This song "Courtship Dance" and this live version I never tire of watching or hearing. To me it's just incredibly beautiful, graceful and romantic. He makes his own flutes...all shapes and sizes. Watch all the way through....you don't want to miss it towards the end...believe me! Enjoy, my blog friends...hope you like it as much as I do!

Flute has always sounds enchanting to me. Soothing and relaxing, even dreamy. The sound of the wind.

I fed Lizzie for you. Mine is Belang. A cat I had when I was younger living in the village.

Yes, I am so relaxed after hearing his flute music too. Her dance looked lovely but the video feed tonight was really jerky so I didn't get the full effect, darnit.

Fed Lizzie and sent a mouse to her. She's asleep now, so I'll tip-toe away.....
