Listen to this Harp sing on a beach in Wales- extraordinary!

The fellow who made it has a great website:

You will notice he is friends with a poet and plays his Paraguyan Harp alongside poetry recitals!
John....you did not live to see-
who we are because of what you left,
what it is we are in what we make of you.

Very ethereal and other worldly sounding. I'm sure Keats would have been thrilled.

Good find Raphael.

Extraordinary, Raphael! Such a haunting sound--the harp and the waves together. . .I can imagine such a vibration reverberating through Keats's own heart as he gazed longingly out over the sea as he made his final journey to Italy.

Oh, and besides all that, my cats really thought it was groovy! ;)

Can't imagine listening to more than a few minutes of that though, it's not so much earthly music as the music of the spheres.

Don't think I could get through a whole album, the sound of sea splashing!
