TINTARELLA DI LUNA
One of the many groups and solists performering at last night's 30th Anniversary of Link's Hall extravaganza did a quirky, 60's-ish dance with robotic elements to this 1959 song by the Italian pop singer Mina Mazzini, which has been stuck in the head ever since.
And now it's in yours....
The perfect song for a full moon day.*

Apparently Mina was Italy's first female rock singer, and a symbol of female emancipation. Read more here.
Local dance legend Asimina Chremos, who is sometimes known as "Mina," also performed at the festival - in the stairwell, after the main performance. The final performer and main-stage headliner was Link's Hall cofounder Bob Eisen - who accompanied me on my very first trip to India. More details soon.....
*Tintarella means "suntan."
