Ustad Asad Ali Khan - Raga Bhimpalasi - Rudra Veena - Rudra Vina - Dhrupad, Bautzen

Well, not even Simp's approval will make me change my mind about Jay Semko's music.  I still like it and think Mouse in a Hole is a masterpiece.   I knew who Jay Semko was before Simps did.

This is what I've been listening to this week, Ustad Asad Ali Khan playing rudra veena.

Makes me wish I had sixty years to learn something about it.  I love listening to music I've never heard before.

Update:  Simps, I've told you dozens of times I will not date you.  Well, in the sense of noting that you're a geezer but I'm not going out with you.


  1. "I don't like rock. I like Jay Semko's Mouse in a Hole. Therefore Jay Semko's Mouse in a Hole isn't rock."

  2. BTW, the production on that Semko record is a little dated.


  3. "I love listening to music I've never heard before."

    Oh, I'm sure you do. So I've got tickets for a Swedish death metal concert for you.

  4. And the voices in your head keep getting louder.
