Sounds from Davis Sq., Cambridge

Robin and I were underground to catch the T at Davis Sq (Cambridge,MA), I heard some flamenco type guitar. The escalator took us down and the guitar got faster, slowed to a mellow crawl, chopped back and forth. Robin didn't think the guitar melody was "ambient," and I thought - why can't it be?

Listening to ambient - it can be dub, downbeat, sitars behind violins and electronica, chants with a beat. It is the music that makes you feel connected with the ground you stand on, the people you are with, the air that pushes through your lungs.

Ambient music makes me groove, makes me slow down - like tai-chi or tantric sex or deja vu. So how does it make you feel?
