RUMI – I Am Drunk And You Are Insane | Buddha’s Lounge

Redefining the Musical Territory of Downtempo/Chill-Out/Lounge/Global Electronica

The Buddha Lounge series has developed into one of the niftiest sources for downtempo/chill out tracks and its own brand of elegant electronica.

Sequoia Records is dedicated to creating music to enlighten the mind, nourish the soul and celebrate life. For over 20 years the music of Sequoia has defined and transcended the boundaries of New Age, World, Native / Drumming, Trance / Dance, Celtic and Healing / Meditative music.

Sequoia Groove was established by Sequoia Records founders David & Steve Gordon in 2002 as an alternative avenue to showcase nu-global artists with a focus on the expanding Downtempo / Chill-out / Lounge & Global Electronica music movement that had its roots in the chill-rooms of the DJ-inspired European dance club scene. These seamlessly mixed and sequenced compilations and solo releases from brilliant mixologists blend the best elements of global world-beat, dance, ethnic/tribal, electronica, jazz, trip-hop, funk and new age into a new and sophisticated musical hybrid that is the epitome of chill. Perfect sounds for the ultimate relaxed environment – from intimate evenings with friends to a mellow, sophisticated soundtrack for your next party.

Sequoia Groove is also committed to supporting environmental stewardship. We donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of all of our music to the Rainforest Action Network, the United Nations Indigenous Peoples Fund and the Seva Foundation.

We remain devoted to the nu-music movement, and to bringing you the very finest Downtempo / Chill-out / Lounge & Global Electronica available. We welcome you to join us. Stay tuned.

“I am drunk and you are insane
tell me, who will lead us home?
How many times have I asked you not to drink so much
for I see no sober soul in town.

Come to the tavern my dearest and taste the wine of love
for the soul is joyous only in the company of lovers.

The tavern of love is your livelihood
your income and expenses, the wine.

Be careful, not to trust a sober soul
with even one drop of this wine.

Go on playing your lute, my drunken gypsy but tell me,
between the two of us, who is more drunk?

As I left my house a Sufi approached me,
in his glance I saw a hundred gardens.

He swayed from side to side like a ship without an anchor,
while a hundred reasonable men watched on enviously.

Where are you from? I asked him.
He replied, “Half from Turkistan and half from Farghaneh,
half from water and clay and half from soul and heart,
half from the edge of the sea
and half from the depths of the ocean.”
