'Who Will Save Your Soul' — Jewel

As great a song as ever was.

Above, the official 1996 music video.

live on July 25, 1999 at Woodstock 99.

Chacun à son goût.

From Wikipedia: 

Jewel has said that "Who Will Save Your Soul" was the first song that she ever wrote and has explained her creative process in interviews and on-stage as:

When I was about sixteen years old I took a train from Michigan to San Diego and then into Tijuana and hitchhiked around Mexico. It seemed like everybody else was looking for somebody to save them. I wrote it during that trip, but I had no idea it would ever be on a record.

Weaving the Inka Bridge at Q’eswachaka

YouTube description:

This movie was produced for the exhibition "The Great Inka Road: Engineering an Empire," which was on view at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C., in 2018.

Every year, local communities on either side of the Apurimac River Canyon use traditional Inka engineering techniques to rebuild the Q'eswachaka Bridge.

The old bridge is taken down and the new bridge is built in only three days.

The bridge has been rebuilt in this same location continually since the time of the Inka.

This video is narrated by John Ochsendorf, professor of civil engineering, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and produced by Noonday Films.

Want more?

Here's an 51-minute-long documentary on this bridge.

YouTube description:

In a remote place in Peru, in the southern Cusco region, around one thousand people from four communities come together each year to face an amazing challenge: the renewal of the Q'eswachaka Bridge.

The Q'eswachaka, made exclusively of vegetal fibers, is the last preserved suspension bridge in the Andes.

Despite the existence of a modern steel bridge nearby, residents of the local community gather every year to rebuild the Inca rope bridge according to the old traditions as a way to honor their ancestors and the Pachamama (Earth Mother).
