MusicPosted by schoth Sat, May 07, 2016 21:55:40
Being a fan of the music of Nicolas jaar I searched the You Tube channel for some simular music and found a beautiful song of NU, titled "Man O To". Nine minutes of pure bliss.

I like the song so much that i decided to present you the 4 hour version !

Info from the YouTube reactions:

"this lyric is from an old persian poem by Rumi. Rumi was a well known poet in the twelve hundreds know for his romantic poems. Wanting to know more we found the following translation of the poem".



"Sitting here, you and I, the courtyard breeze is cool. Two images, two forms, one thought, you and I. The orchard-shades, the songs of birds give up the world’s secrets When we find ourselves here in this garden The stars of distant galaxies come to gaze on us You and I, together, we show them the moon You and I, without ‘you’ and ‘I’, we are absolute joy Happy, free from empty words, such are you and I All those birds of paradise, full of childish envy While in that same place, you and I, we cannot help but laugh What’s truly strange is you and I, here together, now At once here in the west and at once here in the east such we always were You and I"
