Politics and poetry in a blues voice, this music video, of the first song on the Blue-Loves CD of the same title, is meant as an arrow to the heart of Washington, and explores the politics of language as well as the language of politics. Talking blues over imagery of July 4th in Washington DC and nearby, make for a riveting contrast between the visual and the verbal, the ideal and the real. This is the work of a master poet and film-maker and an inspired singer-interpreter. A high definition version of this video is available, from Blue-Loves.com. Originally written in 2008 by Elihu and sung by Rama, the video, given the process and the people, is still very relevant.
