about

Ishuakara

At the time I was writing this composition, I remember sitting in Plaza Santo Domingo in the city of Oaxaca, jonesing for the possibility of having the enchanting and uncanny voice of Areni Agbabian, as I had composed this piece with her voice in mind. My lovely partner April Guthrie, to whom I dedicated this song, asked Areni to come out and record the song, and sure enough she was as incredible as I thought she would be. Ishuakara was a difficult song to leave alone too. I don't think I have re-written any other tune as much as I have this one. I am pleased to say that Ishuakara has been “carved out” to reveal its essence, and no more re-writes will be needed. Ishuakara, which means “rebirth” in the Zapoteco language, was truly that.
