Barack Obama Reel
This tune came about during the week when we first came together in April 2009. Obama was very much in the news and as I admired his intelligence and ability I felt that he would be a graceful dancer. In the course of our antics and tunes Martin mentioned that he heard that Obama did a workout every morning and finished off to the music of the Irish band Lúnasa on his iPod. “Aha” says I to myself, “what kind of sound would get his toes tapping.” Then this tune came to me. If he ever hears it I wonder will its tonality and rhythm, which he caused, fit his ear and find rhythm in his feet!
Recorded on the first Triúr
album "Triúr sa Draighean"
