Firewater:: The Golden Hour

In 2005, Firewater’s Tod A embarked on what would become a three year sabbatical through the Middle East, the Indian Subcontinent and South East Asia. Recording with a single microphone and a laptop in his pack, he captured performances with a vast array of musicians across India and Pakistan–and eventually Turkey and Israel. Bhangra and sufi percussion would form the basis for the songs he wrote along the way–songs about the world he left behind, politics, and dislocation.
