This one comes from Barney Hoskyns interviewing Johnny Cash.
I met Elaine Ling at Gallery Arcturus where she was showing part of her Mongolian series. I was moved by her work and indomitable spirit which carried her to places unknown to most of us. Because of Elaine, we are able to glimpse these places and to sense their atmosphere. This was her gift.

A shorter version of a wonderful video titled FOLI (there is no movement without rhythm).
Life has a rhythm, it's constantly moving.
The word for rhythm (used by the Malinke tribes) is FOLI.
It is a word that encompasses so much more than drumming, dancing or sound.
It's found in every part of daily life.
In this film you not only hear and feel rhythm but you see it.
It's an extraordinary blend of image and sound that
feeds the senses and reminds us all
how essential it is.
Original full version created by Thomas Roebers & Floris Leeuwenberg and dedicated to the people of Baro.
"It is very good advice to believe only what an artist does, rather than what he says about his work." - David Hockney
