Brujo de Lujo

( Wizard of Leisure )

the first music video from the 

Melodic Energy Commission CD

Time is a slippery concept

Touching earth with a lover's hand,
this performance of guitarist Don Xaliman
and violinist Azul Salvaje, emits from the
earthy environs of Hornby Island.
In this visually fluid forest, people are
incidental as the true characters are flora.

VIDEO BY XALIMAN 


A walk in the forest with a camera while the flora danced it's windy wonderment.
Back in the studio the music was created in the same fluid style.
This one dates back to summer of 2004

and costumes, can merge with international flair.

A live performance by the, now extinct, Vancouver (The Drive)
based Earth Funk Circus band called All Purpose.
This event was staged as a benefit for Vancouver Independent
Co-operative Television. Lot's of cameras
