Dukkha's Nemesis

Dukkha's Nemesis

Dukkha's Nemesis emerged from:

* a KID

 

who sang a lot  (in her head and out loud, too)

 

and read a lot

and later wrote songs about stuff that

gnawed  (like earth-trashing and other greed-driven un-nice un-necessaries); or inspired 

(like equality, and other love- injected fragments of enlightenment);

and songs about relationships and choices of the best and worst kinds;

 

still later, the now big KID sang                                                 

 blues and rock on New England stages

 but wasn't content:

  she wanted to DO something about the                

 EFFED UP stuff going on in the world

  and at least express her concerns, using multi-genred ORIGINAL music                          

 and maybe a bit of visual art, too (like dukkha-wrestling

red clay man here):

 

* and, later, her KIDS -

who also sang lot  (mostly out loud,

     but also in their heads;

 you could kind of

 see it happening)  

         

 ... and grew up singing even more,

and the big KID's son learned to play

    the trumpet, and write, and

arrange... 

  ...all quite exquisitely 

                   

* AND, finally, Dukkha's emerged from collaborating with the big KID's grown-up kids' FRIENDS, who also happened to grow up to be amazingly talented musicians, having studied and worked with jazz greats including Joe Lovano, Bob Mintzer, and Marcus Miller; hell, Adam's even touring with Ludacris.
