The philosopher Georges Ivanovitch Gurdjieff developed his music originally to accompany the dances and movements that he taught to pupils. The sources for his melodies came from music heard in childhood or on his prodigious and now famous travels, documented in the book (www.gurdjieff.org) he wrote. A lot of explanation for something so beautifully simple, tonight we play tracks from the album Gurdjieff/Tsabropoulos “Chants, Hymns and Dances”, a beautiful album we love on the show.
