Picture and Sound

An old man
standing by a canary cage
looking at the camera

I am listening to his music
Setar improvisations
in Abu Atta

And something in his eyes
years after his death
sets me on fire


I am listening to this clip, , Ahmad Ebadi's Setar improvisations in Abu Atta. And there is this picture, between 3:45 and 5:30 minutes, of him standing by a canary cage, that when combines with his Setar voice affects me in way I cannot describe!
