Jazz Area Rugs and call and response

Filed under: Economy — Tony @ 2:00 pm

A little about call and response in area rugs and jazz. When the tribal weavers work they work in groups for months. The harmony you see in the designs speaks volumes about the spirit of the ensemble. Months later they have created an artistic area rug and its beautiful. Listen carefully when you read a rug. Correct me if I am wrong but what I see is an art piece of love and harmony. Doesn’t that remind you of jazz?. I think a tribal Gabbeh has all the hallmarks of a Jazz score in cloth. Its all call and response
Look at the Gabbeh and listen to the stunning example of call and response at work in jazz from the late great B.B King. Imagine the weavers as you listen to the giants of jazz and soon you to will read area rugs very differently.
I guarantee it. When you watch the video keep your ear tuned to the ” call and response” a hugely democratic process. One player passes off to another-B.B to Clapton and be ads his interpretation and on it goes. Its art/jazz/humanity in action. Thats how I read tribal rug creativity.
