The art of cooking contains alchemical magic, that is, the transformation of materials into something new.
Of course, with improved texture and better quality.
Many times, something that is not eaten or even poisonous, turns into very tasty food.
After all, cooking and magic have a common root in the Babylonian word mag-.
Random sounds, on the other hand, when they enter a series become notes, which in turn satisfy another sense.
That of hearing, transforming simple notes into a beautiful melody.
Some, of course, took the metaphor of “musical cooking” literally.
Either by naming the musical group in which they participated with some food, or even their artistic persona.
And in fact, there were not a few who by their “culinary” name were pioneers in the evolution of music.
As it happened, sometime in 1910 when a man named Aaron Thibeaux Walker was born.
Walker, a few years later would leave his name in the chapters of music history and even in capital letters.
Under the stage name “T-Bone” Walker, he was the first to record songs accompanied by an electric guitar.
All this, under the name of a steak!
However, there are many “comestibles” that climbed to the top of the music charts and became world-famous.
“Feeding” at the same time, their fans, in concert halls full of… Musical notes.
