The Flaming Bus

Flame Bus

I took this photo today in Washington, D.C.


This cool bus is painted with flames on the hood and has a guitar at the top. 


No, it’s not the bus from The Partridge Family although it has similar colors!


On this bus, the guitar has the name “Sailing Conductors Jack Mantis” on it. 


When I looked this up online, I found that these are some “music loving dudes” who travel (sail and bus) the world and record musicians across dozen of countries and 5 continents. 


They have music, videos, and a 4-part TV series from their global talent search–although there is only limited material at their site (so not sure where all the recordings from the “hundreds of local musicians” is available for consumption).


Anyway, this is a fascinating experiment in discovering diversity, music and the arts, and culture along their travels. 


As to the specific music–beauty is in the eye of the beholder. 😉
