about

This track was the result of being on the Klangwelten tour and collaborating with German harpist Rudiger Oppermann and Mongolian throat singer and Moorin Khor (2 stringed violin) player, Enkh Jargal (Epi). I did not have a translation for the traditional Mongolian tune hat Epi taught me so wrote my own lyrics. At the time I was trying to decide where to live and going back and forth between the US and Europe. Rudiger is playing the drum on this.

lyrics

I am a homeless wanderer
Beneath an ever-changing sky
Oh sky you are my father now
For a homeless wanderer am I
Oh earth you are my mother dear
Oh stars you are my sisters bright
My brothers are the birds that fly
So a never lonely wanderer am I

Diana Rosalind New Orleans, Louisiana

This is a partial musical record of that journey. ... more
