Music: Forest Fires by Axel Flóvent

I don’t remember when was my last time crying from listening to a music.

When I listen to this song, I feel like he is touching my soul. And I’m waiting for him to come near, even if he can’t make sad thoughts and fears disappear, I am waiting for him to show me a beautiful painting of my memories that will comfort me.

Book: The Little Prince

One of my all time favourite books. I remember buying this post card in Lyon and how happy I was writing these cards to my precious friends. If I ever have kids, this will be one of the first book I’ll buy for them as soon as they can start reading.

FILM: THE MUSIC OF STRANGERS

I’ve always in love with Yo-Yo Ma’s music, but this documentary made me respect him even more as an artist & human not just for his music. The film makes you think what role music plays in the world and how amazing it would be if music can bring us all together overcoming the cultural and language differences to bring the true peace in the world. A great movie with lots of inspirations and interesting aspects of world music & history.

The Grammy-nominated documentary The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble, follows members of the Ensemble as they gather in locations across the world, exploring the ways art can both preserve traditions and shape cultural evolution.

Film: The modern life of Bushmen – How we changed their simple & happy life into tourist spots

I remember watching this movie when I was very young and just laughed at the man who was so shocked and amazed with the coca-cola bottle he found in the bush. And then, that was pretty much it. The memory of the fun movie disappeared along with all other fun memories of my childhood, until I watched this documentary Ghostland yesterday at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema.
