‘Night Jasmine’

‘Jasmine of Night’ by Katy Hooper with Argentinia pianist Mauro Alves El viaje del Rayo. Thanks Mauro for putting this video together in the woods of Galicia, Spain, where we had the luck to meet, share music and stories of our travels.

Everytime I smell this flower a thousand feelings rush through me. I wrote this song a few years ago in Cordoba, walking back late and listening to some flamencan players sharing songs by the fountains. They didnt know I was there and I sat and listened to them and the sound of the water and the cicadas, breathing in this smell. And this flower seems to find me everywhere I travel, in every continent, walking back late from some place new. One of my companions.
