Collecting songs
(BETWEEN FRANCE AND NEPAL) In France, I tell children a story and they sing a song that I collect. Once I have finished my french collect, I will leave hitch hiking to Nepal. On my way, I will sing with my guitar and i will juggle with children. In return, they will teach me a song wich will delight my travel and wich will meet others children fron the world. Spreading songs all the way, I would like to provoke meetings and to build bridges between children from differents countries.

Where am I actually ?

French school

When i arrived during the pupils holidays , i thought to wait the end to have my collect of Turkish songs.

No, at the embassy, i know that the french school at Ankara is open.

Quickly, i met the director and together we decide the date: on february friday the 8th.

Like its name shows, this school works like a true french school with in more a few pupils from other nationalities.

Into the Isabelle class "C E 2", there are 20 children with 1 spanish and 2 finland girls.

With a few pupils from "C M 1" , they allowed to me  the collect of 3 songs among 2 are turc and 1 is french unitled: "at the hairdresser".

We had a lovely moment together; i have related the Tunga story.

In the classroom , there was no djembé (tam tam) but a derbouka which look like it. It's made with wood ,  goat skin , terra cotta and plastic.

The pupils danced on the derbouka music and they move well their members (arms and legs).

THANKS everybody, i'm happy for this 1° asia collect at the middle of my way.
