Leaving Brighton and finding a new home in BARCELONA!

So far, I have a beautiful flat in the centre of the old town of Barcelona.

On Thursday after watching Made in Barcelona play in the sunshine, and a bit of a party for Francois birthday,  I went to Cafe Royal and joined in the crazy afro-beat/world music jam session that they have there every Thursday.  CAFE ROYAL FB

On Friday I was Invited to play with a duo that play world music on Kora, Hang Drum and the Oud. We plan to jam again and I will try and post the gig before it happens.

On Saturday it was an honour to be I was invited to solo with MADE IN BARCELONA , I am pretty sure someone grabbed me after and said they had filmed it .. so as soon as i get that its up on here 🙂

this is one of my favourite songs by them:

On Saturday night I guested with Super Spanish Combo – at an ART EXHIBITION FACEBOOK – CULTURAL WORLD

Afterwards we jammed and jammed.. I led everyone in with my two songs Spaniards and Cool as Apples and we had a crazy jam for hours and then partied until the sun came up!

Ive found an amazing venue called BARTS – Parallel BCN  and was invited to play along with a very Beautiful musician MU MBANA – his trio that day were glowing with truth and beauty – I played along to ‘God Bless the Child’.

Now I rest and organise some Interviews for working with children on holiday camps.

Im going to leave you with this song. Its as beautiful as the girl who posted it on facebook earlier, Big Ups to Katherine Abbot 🙂

Something i wrote earlier….

Swimming in the seas of bold, swinging in the trees of old,

making memories to be told, and stories that can hold gold.

Moments gone and to come, a journey won and to be sung,

feeling life again just begun, as winter sets in with a new sun“. EH

micReading poetry and rhymes.. with musical backing and some hip hop freestyles, you couldn’t ask for more than an open door and a smile to welcome you into a chair, as you stare and envelop the musical magic as it develops with a taste on heaven as its scent,
you might feel spent , but the less you digress the more you feel blessed and now i point you to the question and invite you and the rest to come and support the musically blessed as they test and try out their favourite rhymes and rhythmical tales with melody and a musical framework and that will keep you enthralled throughout the sunday evening calm , come along and dont be shy come and grab the mic and show us how your feeling , your words dont have to have a clear meaning just a expression of time that rhymes
