The Surreal McCoy’s Wolf Of Baghdad Kickstarter At 75%
The Surreal McCoy, who began contributing to The New Yorker in 2014, reports that the Kickstarter campaign for her “Wolf Of Baghdad” soundtrack is up to 75%. To read more about this and contribute, go here.
Ms. McCoy writes: Here’s a short video by 3yin’s founder and bandleader Daniel Jonas to give a taste of the repertoire that we hope to be recording. The song is called Shams esh-Shamousa (Beautiful Sun) and is the Iraqi version of a traditional Arabic folk tune:
It rises, how beautiful is its light/The sun, precious sun/Come on, let’s go and milk the buffalo/It rose over the river Tigris/A gentle breeze blew from the west/ The waves call out ‘Hello!’/And send the sun their greetings.
