Jericoacoara, Radio Garden, trip hop and the world

You chance upon one thing, which leads you to another, which takes you on somewhere else and the journey is …

 

I chanced upon this website offering up radio station listening to stattions all over the world. I found a particular station, it seems based in northern Brazil in Jericoacoara. I thought that I would explore via google maps and found what is a most remarkable place. With the most incredible beaches in front of me, then shops, streets and more reminding me of my time in Africa with trip hop playing in the background … I was transported to feelings of real comfort and joy in places such as the Harley in Sheffield, back some years ago, along with the joys of discovering a whole variety of new, gentle, thoughtful and imaginative sounds and beats. There was the subdued lighting and relaxed joy of those venues, good drinks, sweet beats. Then in front of me were the memories of times in Lesotho, gentler times, good people, warmth, physical and emotional (even though there was a war going on).

I have even got to the point of looking for work in the place. Somewhow I think I might enjoy the place. For me, as well, the music on the radio station fits in a peculiar way. It is not the local music – forro! Nor is it particularly south american, but the trip hop being played had all of the gentle imagination and subtle emotion that goes with a very distinct, warm sunset which is itself bracketed by a day of heat, gentle walking, getting on with things, and then a night of drinks, dance and food, with its ease in and ease out moments (so trip hop), then bed at ridiculous o’clock.

There are old moods that come along every once in a while, not so mcuh laboured or tired, sometimes comfortable and comforting. They take you off to another time.

There are days when the textures of rust are something more … they take you along and bring back those memories of times when there was not so much comfort as something easier …

Here I present a series of variations – trees and textured backgrounds. The addition of colour, textures, patterns to the mix brings a new feel to each. I hope you enjoy the progression from one set of emotional references to the next.
