Fête de la Musique – Genève

Three days of free outdoor music and dance. Wow.

Among this year's concerts that I visited:

  • Alenko (Alex, the vocals teacher at EPI, performs well. He refers to the concert as a journey, where the songs make up a whole)
  • Silecie (Charlotte Nordin sings and moves very well, and has a song in Swedish, "Svek")
  • Tango de Sueño
  • Malavida (a local Geneva band, not bad at all, wishing us a "Merry Christmas", as the last song)
  • María de la Luz (wow, what a presence on stage. Happiness)

Song writing

We are about to take a step forward in the band, with starting to compose our own songs.

So now I am asked to come up with the lyrics for the first song.

Ah, how to do that?

I think I will start by looking in my journals that I've kept since 20 years. The problem is that there's mostly prose. What I should do is to start writing poetry instead. And describe the world as a poet.

Hmmm. Might be easier said than done.

I'll give it a try, though. Watch this space… ;-)
