Fun On Friday #49: Bobby McFerrin

I think pretty much anything with Bobby McFerrin in it would qualify for a Fun On Friday (for example, this Ave Maria is stunning) however, today's Fun on Friday combines McFerrin, Music and the Mind:

World Science Festival 2009: Bobby McFerrin Demonstrates the Power of the Pentatonic Scale from World Science Festival on Vimeo.

How cool is that? ...And I love the "scientific" question asked at the end of the video. :-)

If this whets your appetite, you can check out the videos of the whole session on the World Science Festival site.

Appology: Many of my favourite links recently have come from Twitter contacts. I note the site but usually forget to note who posted it. So, thank you to whoever directed me to this video. Please claim credit in the comments so I can thank you properly.

Hello John

I was going to send this post to you because I had a notion that you were a McFerrin Fan. If I remember correctly, it was you that pointed me to the Ave Maria link.

Glad you had fun with this.
