about

Eclectic percussionist Richie Barshay's second album as a leader is a collection of drum-centric originals featuring special guest Chick Corea. Drawing influences from Brasil, Mali, India, and explorations with found-recycled percussion, the songs capture the role of drumming as a personal and communal sanctuary. Recorded inside a historic synagogue in Flatbush, Brooklyn.

Track Name: Sycamore
lyrics:

In winter, in summer,
look up for me,
forsaken tree.

Hear me callin' -
How high can you see?
When will you wait for me?
Hear me callin',
your sycamore tree.

Hear these blowing leaves -
Waiting, watching,
Up high do you see?
Look high above for me.
Waiting, watching,
your sycamore tree.
