On Being with Krista Tippett is a public radio project delving into the human side of news stories + issues. Curated + edited by senior editor Trent Gilliss.

We publish guest contributions. We edit long; we scrapbook. We do big ideas + deep meaning. We answer questions.

We've even won a couple of Webbys + a Peabody Award.

While in college, I went to see Paco de Lucia with my dad at the Guzman Center for the Performing Arts in Miami. My father plays classical guitar and Paco de Lucia was one of his heroes so seeing him in concert for the first time together was a really big deal for both of us.

I will never forget how my dad’s eyes lit up as he watched this master flamenco guitarist play, how he tapped his fingers along with the music. 66-years-old was far too young to lose this legend. RIP.

Where can I find the recording of Daniel Lanois' "Ice," that was played on today's (5/29) broadcast?

Thank you!


Daniel Lanois - AcadieGood morning, Karyn. Each week we put together a website for the particular show being released online and on the radio. And, two of the elements are a complete list of books and music used in the show, and a show playlist — which streams the full tracks of all the songs played in the production.

Daniel Lanois’ “Ice” comes from his album Acadie and is included in the “Presence in the Wild” show playlist. Almost any album of his is worth buying.
