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 ?

«  Décembre 2018  »

at the school

When i arrived at the school of Gorëme; i watch the children

who play in the courtyard covered with snow.

The basket ball court became a ground of ball prisoner,

what i would say a ground of snowballs

Suddenly, the notes of " Elise letter " have effects in the village

and each child with the same clothes gets on line to go in the class.

This time, the pupils from Tuncan class (6 years) haven't the time

to open the exercise books because: Ali, the assistant manager

come in this class and the pupils stand up to greet him.

He presents me and Sali , a jeweller who has inhabited in Paris

a few years ago. He helps me to speak and traduct with the pupils

and teachers.

The next hour, we meet 2 classes in the same ; there are more fifty

children who are 11 or 12. Some pupils aren't sitting confortably but

the silence is total.

We could year a fly in the air.

A story and a few songs collected, a woman teacher become a

orchestra chief and leader, then all the children are singing with the

arms crossed .

At the end of the song, They get high arms and hand in hand.

It was tuesday february 12th : one collect in Cappadoce.
