Purple Hearts and Turquoise Dreams by Az Samad
This piece is inspired by happiness!
Too often, we hear of songs being written at the moments when heartbreak and sadness peak. Instead of just writing at those moments, I believe we should embrace moments of happiness and capture it in music too.
This piece is partly inspired by my new guitar. The guitar is unique because of the purple back and sides which is made of purple heart wood. As the wood ages, it changes to purple. When I first played the guitar, the fine folks at Maestro Guitars told me that it would change into a darker shade of purple over the year.
The other inspiration for the song is Yin, who has been an epic huge part of my life. Thanks Yin!
Hope you like the song!
This performance was at 脱口唱 Open Mic hosted by Winnie Ho 何芸妮 13/9, 20/9, 27/9, specifically the one on 27 Sept. It was a beautiful night of music from so many talented and hardworking musicians. I feel very blessed to be a part of it.
