Dominique Eade’s Set (excerpt)

Because of technical issues, only these two tunes from Dominique Eade’s wonderful set at the “Singing For The Planet” concert are available. She is accompanied very sympathetically and supportively by Will Graefe on guitar and Will Slater on bass.

Here is her version of Hoagy Carmichael’s “Buttermilk Sky,” a song which I’d never heard before.

This is her original piece, called “The River.” She begins with some nice singing and kalimba:

Madhya Tintaal: Main to kaari aayi piya sanga rangaraliyaa / main vaari jaat pan ghat ke ghaat // Ek to dar mohe saas nananda ko / duje duraniyaa jaitaniyaa sataave / nisa din Prem Piya ki baat hai (composition by Ut. Faiyaaz Khan)
