Music is one of the purest forms of expression on earth. For centuries worldwide, it has served as one of the greatest illustrations of culture, energy, connection, and progression; music’s inexplicable attraction continually keeps us captivated, and yet we sometimes cannot express why it hits so hard in our soul. What we do know, however, is that music brakes down walls; brings us together; helps us pinpoint our energy and focus; and often inspires beyond belief.
In Pink Floyd‘s film Pink Floyd: Live at Pompeii, the band makes history by becoming the first musical act to ever perform at the ruins of Pompeii. Nearly 2000 years ago, the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius wiped out the civilization of Pompeii in mere minutes. No one survived.
Celebrating life while paying homage to people of the world and the lost souls of Pompeii; Floyd goes on a transcendent odyssey to unravel the truths of the Unified Funk that exists within all of us.
Sit back with some space snacks and enjoy the clip.
