Relax Your Mind

I woke up earlier than my thoughts said I ought to this morning. I realized, too, that it wasn’t that I even felt that tired then, but I just thought I should be sleeping more. 200 more words

ASESINATOS, PRISIONES Y CANCIONES. LA HISTORIA DE LEADBELLY.

Publicado en Evaristo Cultural en abril de 2015

Si los epitafios rindieran auténtico honor a la vida y obra de quienes homenajean, si se refirieran a los hechos que marcaron la vida de éstos de manera fiel e innegable y al pie de la letra, la lápida que descansa sobre la tumba de Huddie William Ledbetter, enclavada en el suelo firme del cementerio de la iglesia de Shiloh, en las afueras de Shreveport, Louisiana, debería rezar algo así como “Aquí yace Leadbelly, Cantante, Guitarrista, Compositor y Asesino, 1885-1949” Teniendo en cuenta que quizás no hubiera resultado la descripción más indicada para acompañar a una tumba que, finalmente, descansa junto a un templo bautista, la inscripción “Una leyenda de Louisiana, Rey de las Doce Cuerdas” seguramente resultó más oportuna al momento de describir al más emblemático cantante y músico negro de folk americano de la historia. 3,412 more words
