The brilliant ‘Sorutihudu Maniya Maligi’, the last song on Raghu Dixit’s album. A Sufi-inspired song that begins with a thunderclap, drops of rain on the guitar and says ‘The roof is leaking, the roof is leaking with ignorance…‘

My big fave would have to be Creedence Clearwater Revival’s ‘Who’ll Stop the Rain?’ Springsteen plays it at every rain sodden one of his gigs, and it often does miraculously stop the rain!

I’ve recently come across the beautiful ‘Gu Qin’ by A Moving Sound based on a 11th century poem by Su Shi – ‘Don’t mind the rain beating on the leaves. Let’s walk slowly while humming a tune.’
Tatiana Rucinska, Listings Editor
Mine would be ‘Rain, Rain, Beautiful Rain’ by Ladysmith Black Mambazo from the album Shaka Zulu.
