One of our family´s main businesses was commercial radio. As a child I was taught and trained by my father to recognize a tune with top 40 potential and / or great quality music – according to my own taste, of course 😉 and that of the target audience – during the first five seconds of a tune. For me it was a game but now and although the criteria has changed over the last 15 years I still relish the thought of discovering great artists! Which makes this post overdue by a few days.
With newfound time on my hands at night I luckily accepted the TP of a friend. It took me forever to rez and even more just to be able to listen (I use a MAC running on Maverick on my computer´s second partition in order to just be able to log into SL!) but once I did, I realized I had landed at a live concert and I was surrounded by Avatars who were mesmerized by the tunes playing. In all truth the experience was unique!
On the stage in front of me, was Tukso Okey giving us a live performance. His choice of music was not only interesting, different and almost philosophical, but he had obviously been influenced by the classics; he played like a real guitar virtuoso.
The surrounding crowd, huge by virtual standards, was made up of his followers and friends. They seemed to be having a marvelous time and the kind of unique, exclusive experience of those in the ´known´ and of which I will admit, I ´m not a part of in SL.
Unfortunately I had to decide between trying to record his performance or crashing. I decided to stay and dance and just flow with his deep soulful music and trippy sounds. into La, Lan-da Land! Tukso, came across as an amazing musician, a kind soul, a nice chap and one who is quite well organized through his partner Pedula Bing who represents him.
I left the venue relaxed, refreshed and happy, with a calm, warm feeling deep inside. In RL or SL I´d choose his music any time! The video below was recorded by the Artist prior to my introduction to his music. Perhaps you should give him a try. I humbly believe that he should be recognized. Thank you Tukso for your music!
This strapless cotton top with a closed eyelet embroidery comes as part of a set with shorts. Because I wear a mesh body and the shorts are more suitable for the system avi I decided to pair it with shorts that I already owned. The top, however worked fine on the body and I loved the hanging eyelet triangle on the front.
