Like many of you listening, Coffee plays an important role in my life. Coffee, for me, is the great mixer, the dark aromatic liquid warms me each morning and perfumes the air throughout the day with the scent of distant exotic lands. I prefer to drink coffees bearing the names of countries. I like Sumatra, Kenya AA, Columbian, Ivory Coast, Hawaiian Kona, Zimbabwe, and, of course, Java the country name synonomous with coffee.

This evening it's a special pleasure for me to share a CD called "Music From The Coffee Lands" with you. courtesy of the Starbuck Cafe at Mankato's Barnes & Nobles; where you can pick up a free coffee beverage of your choice with the purchase of the "Music From The Coffee Lands" CD.

Vibrant and magical arrangements of traditional Estonian music in the ancient runic song the style. Music in the Kalavala Balto-Finnic runic-verse song-form is presumed to date from before the 1st millenium B.C. Kirile Loo was born in a northern Estonian village called Varinurme and spent most of her childhood at her grandmother's home, without electricity or telephone, in a place covered by the primeval forest of Estonia . Kirile Loo learned this music from her grandmother. Her pure and soulful voice is accompanied here by a wide variety of traditional Estonian instruments.

If I'd Been Born an Eagle
Dangyna [Princess]

Music from Tuva, a mountainous region between Mongolia and Siberia. The Tuvan throat singers evoke a deeply spiritual music dating from the 12th century and beyond. Rustic and expressive music, rooted in the sounds of nature, an other-worldly yet accessible sound deeply spiritual yet at the same time singing of love, horses, and the life of shepherds on the Mongolian steppe.

Dangyna [Princess] Lyric of 1st verse:
Princess, Princess, Princess
In you is gathered all the beauty of mountainous Tuva.
From olden times, accompanying the men of Tuva.
My dear one, star of my desire,
In the taiga, on the road, in the steppe,
I constantly think about you,
My much valued talisman.
