i came out with my bike onto my porch one morning in february to discover this overhanging cornice of snow on my roof. i had been listening to the music of the incredible mali band tinariwen just moments before.
their musical expression of the experience of living in the desert as toureg nomads filling me alongside my cup of coffee.
so, looking up into the sky and seeing the tree somehow growing out of the snowy cornice, a circle was drawn with their music growing out of the equally unlikely barrenness of the desert.
