    ¶ hold your fire, take your place around an open fire¶ (Andrew Bird) good music, from the heart, simultaneously grounds us in/releases us from the web of time, as well providing a fastlane to interconnection...a story of a man trying to adapt ancient Ladakh music to modern times, this is a nice little documentary about music, family, the importance of artistic expression to our soul culture.(RWE)****
