  2. Thanks for the music, BigO
    I’m glad I got in here before the troll-fest to show some appreciation

  3. Hearty thanks, BigO. My global music taste skew to Mali, Senegal and Jamaica mostly, but it’s great to have this offering from India to investigate. She’s new to me but obviously not to the rest of the world. Cheers.

Sorry Ron and Swappers ‘ I see where they have gone after you too. Maybe Brian also ‘ who can be sure anymore.
