'Madakalaa' -- Our Tribute to John Martyn

Hello folks,

we thought we would share an interesting point about writing Madakalaa:

we wanted some home-grown percussive elements in the song, so we decided to try pan lids(!) from the kitchen, and it turns out that the two lids we picked were pitched at E and F# which are the root notes of two of the song's main chords! A little help from John? We like to think so. Cool nontheless!

Take it easy, Dawn & Paul
