Re: Music in the Dojo?

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightning
But they fought with expert timing

They were funky China men from funky Chinatown
They were chopping them up and they were chopping them down
It's an ancient Chineese art and everybody knew their part
From a feint into a slip, and kicking from the hip

Sorry, couldn't resist that one hit wonder. One of the things about music in Muay Thai (and what I've seen of Capoeira) is that it's live, and as such the musicians do have some interaction with what's happening in the ring. Not quite the same as putting on your Carl Douglas LP from 1974 in the dojo (or listening to it on your iPod). But then again I remember singing Tom Jones' "It's Not Unusual" in the dojo...
