Oh Pavlova, you never let me down. Served with a delectable roasted jam and juicy berries, the classic meringue with cream is as delicious as it is beautiful.

Such a heavenly dessert deserves equally majestic music.

I am enthralled with 17 Pygmies’ space rock saga of Celestina and Isabel. The latest in the story is Isabel II: Abandon Rising. I think this may be the very best of them all. The music has a rich quality to it and plays like a vivid score. The instrumental tracks are supremely good but, as ever, I adore the songs that showcase Meg’s beautiful vocals.

You can read about the earlier recordings here, here, here and here.

Check out 17 Pygmies on Facebook. You can buy their music here.

Cheers!
