Music Day!

I almost forgot another thing that is being celebrated today!

Over here in Spain (and I know that in France it is celebrated as well) the 21st June is also the day of the music.

Do you know Gabrielle Aplin? Well, I think these days she is in Spain. I guess she is promoting her latest album called “English Rain”.

One of my favourite songs from this album, “Home”:

Very touching, isn’t it?

Another sunny day!

People, 11th June and finally the sun is shining and it will get warmer and warmer during the week! And to celebrate it, I would like to share this song, that I discovered thanks to a Spanish radio programme (it is called “La ventana” and it is broadcasted from 16 to 20 pm from Monday to Friday) in which this song is used to introduce one of their sections.

Olimpic Games: Madrid 2020?

This is a quick post. I just came across this video that seems to be the candidacy of Madrid as a host city of the Olimpic Games in 2020.

This is not the first time Madrid is candidate to host the Olimpic Games and each time there has always been some controversy on the matter.

What do you think about it?

The video is fine, I guess. The only thing is the “flamenco” music (nothing against flamenco, I like some stuff). For some reason, “we” keep present it as something universal in Spain, but then, we get annoyed when we go abroad and people keep asking us if we dance flamenco everyday, if we play or sing flamenco, etc, etc.

Maybe another day I will write about stereotypes and my experience of 4 years in Italy…
