Here is another Art and Zen Today Exclusive; a video of singer Mo King b’s performance at the Grammys that was deleted because he was supposedly not well received by the audience.
You may never have heard of Mo King b and that suits the producers of the Grammy Awards just fine. Mo King b’s music was showcased in an earlier video ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tCiVNF-SfPA ) a couple of years ago and I was shocked to learn that his performance at this year’s Awards was deleted from the tape feed at the last moment. According to the producers Mo’s performance did not air because “Mo King’s performance was way too experimental and inaccessible for the Grammy audience”. Paradoxically, Gilbert Mothworthy, of the Dronington Post wrote “b’s music was shockingly imitative and unoriginal causing many people in the theater that night to fall into an altered state of consciousness”. Click on the link below for this never before seen video of King’s short performance. For best results listen in stereo, preferably using headphones.
