I sing a fair bit; actually in two choirs, the New Haven Oratorio Choir and Orchestra and <i>Tonos Humanos</i>. I love Baroque music, and acoustic guitar, which I'm learning to play (with mixed results...). If I can sing it, I'll listen to it. This does not typically include rap or metal (not for lack of trying; I just can't understand what's being said!).
I have a strange fondness for musicals and Disney, like most females of my age and generation.
I also have this thing for Bollywood. It's simply amazing.
I love son, tango, merengue, salsa and samba. Ry Cooder is an evil man. And Yo-yo Ma knocks my socks off.
<i>Musick has Charms to sooth a savage Breast,
To soften Rocks, or bend a knotted Oak.
I've read, that things inanimate have mov'd,
And, as with living Souls, have been inform'd,
By Magick Numbers and persuasive Sound.</i>
~William Congreve's <i>The Mourning Bride</i>, 1697
