Todays world music extravaganza takes us to a bazaar in the year, well, a very long time ago.
What you see is like an explosion of colours and smells to your face.
There are slippers, scarves, all kinds of clothing. There are hypnotic tapestries and masterfully crafted rugs.
There’s jewelry, beads and pendants made of amber, amethyst and fools gold, all of which are much more expensive than they’re actually worth.
Indian tricksters make peoples jaws drop with their rope trick. Old snake charmer & his pet gather an excited crowd, whereas a lonely SOAPSTONE VENDOR seems to have a very quiet day.
There are miniature idols, calabashes and pots & pans. There’s pottery from Macedonia, spices from Khitai and beaver cheese from Venezuela…
Ok, now I remembered the scene in “The Thief of Bagdad” (1940), where the heroes are having pancakes with honey.
I’d really like some pancakes with honey!
