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.

village in the desert

For the tenth collect , i was at Garmeh

in the iranian desert . The schools aren't

 mixed in Iran ; but Garmeh is a small

village with 100 inhabitants . Boys and

girls are together until the age : 12. And

then , they go at khur which is a biggest town.

Monday february 3 th  , when i go in the

class with the tallest , the 15 pupils who are

12 stand up . They say hello in the same

moment , the boys are on a side and the

girls (with a long black veil) on the other .

The children listen the director who present

me with 3 teachers among the 14 for the

school : one for each matter .

I explain my trip with a world map and

then i sing 3 songs ( french , deutch and

turc ) ; after , the director ask me to stop .

In Iran , you don't sing a lot , generally only

 the musulman songs are autorised in the

schools .

But , it was with a patriot sing " Iran, Iran "

 that the children finish the collect . Most

pupils are mean timids , perhaps because

i 'm a foreigner, a lot look at the ground .

After this collect , the director invits me in

 his office for tea time . By the window , i

see the 15 pupils who run happily in the

playground and they begin a football

match with boys and girls .

Before to leave this school, i have a knock-up

 with Mahmmoud , a teacher who's a nice

table tennis player .

Thank to Pouia who was my guide for the

visit and my interpreter for translate the collect .


Pierre
