TUNE Jean Toba - Charmeur 2 serpents
All started after having seen the film “A-Haunting We Will Go” with Laurel & Hardy, during which in a variety show, disguised as a fakir, they charm a big rope instead of a snake. Jean Toba found that so funny that he got, from it, the inspiration of this music.
It is well-known that we do not charm the snakes with castanets except, perhaps, if these snakes are Spanish but, in all the cases Jean Toba prefers the charm of the flute. It is more captivating and therefore his composition starts with flute to be more authentic.
His jazzy music is carried by a daydream, a dream, a meditation. He is not here at all, driven by the desire to judge the charmers, the snakes and the snake charmers. Each one is free to charm who wants to be well charmed. Nevertheless, about the tourist use of the snakes, he is not sure that one is concerned about to ask their opinion from these charming reptiles…
But let’s go to the music it is why we are here. So have a good listening ... reptilian !
