Re: OT West African/African Diaspora rhythms: 3/4, 4/4, 6/8, 12/8



notice how heroes always go soft when it comes to mermaids and amazons
gotta love that sub though, enjoying the low pulse, no sea lions, no sea 
horses 
therefore no sub aqua amazons...
but I am hearing beautiful voices, must go and see what it is, will report 
later 
about these bone melting sounds
