Liner Notes

Kafi Kanada is a rare and ancient Indian classical raga. It provides the setting for this music in a "gravity-free environment," a melding of sitarist Jay Kishor's guitar playing with Savana Moore's piano.

There are so few of us left 
and we are very old 
we are the last of our kind 
walking here 
among our fallen ancestors 
passing slowly 
over their bones 
like elephants in their mystical graveyards, 
touching 
ancient, mossy, weathered stones 
discovering 
the scent of our own coming absence 
rising from the soil 
and swallowed by the roses 
still and pungent in the vaporous air 
losing ourselves 
in the moment of our own extinction 
while we are not yet gone, 
but merely rare

~Savana Moore
