Feminine Fusion

April 23, 2017: Elemental Music: Water


“I get my best ideas in a thunderstorm. I have the power and majesty of nature on my side.” – Ralph Steadman


Earth. Air. Fire. Water. From the times of the ancient Greeks, and into the present day, these four elements influence our entire world. Water can nurture, as it does in a gentle spring rain, or destroy in a flood. On this episode, music inspired by water, written or performed by talented women.
