I invite you to listen to a recent podcast of a conversation between Krista Tippett and the very gifted vocalist and musician Bobby McFerrin, in which they discuss the meaning, religious faith, ethics, and ideas that permeate his music.

Bobby has been called a vocal magician who can imitate a wide range of instrumental sounds, rhythms, and musical styles with his voice alone. He is also a conductor of symphonies, choirs, and ensembles, and is a master of improvisation.

This should be of interest to music lovers, instrumentalists, singers, and choral directors. Just click the image below to listen to the podcast:

You might also enjoy Bobby leading an audience in Ave Maria¬†and leading a mass choir in improvisation at the “Sing! Day of Song.”

And finally, a clip of Bobby with base guitarist Richard Bona as they improvise a duet.

Grace and peace.
