Music is a Reflection – Robert Plant

Words of Wonder by Robert Plant

It’s amazing, pumping,
furious, anxious, happy
and far more real than anything
you’ll ever experience in a Western city.

Morocco is a living, pulsating entity
which is rapidly changing all the time
but there are parts of Marrakesh that carry on
as they have done for a thousand years.

The music is a reflection of that,
of all times and all religions
and of all the natural expectations
and conditions of the people who live there.
