Tonight, June 15th, was the end of 'Paris Onze Bouge' Festival...
[Paris 11 or Paris onze, gives 'on se bouge', for let's move, let's swing... In short,
let's say Swinging Eleven !
FireTongue featured at La Bellevilloise tonight with 9 other
very good musicians and... the whole concert was like a hellish
ride on a motor unit, with the brass section embroidering their
phrases around the leading beat which rumbled through your
stomach from the beginning until the end !
Unfortunately, no one seems to have published a video of the performance, nor did I
because of memory card problems... but the atmosphere is the same in the following
videos. Enjoy it.
More on Charles Delangue: AfroBeat/Swing and Spiritual Beats, and for a good info
page, go to African Path.
in a whirl outside !

Why nobody asks the essential question :
Ireland would it be alone now rejecting the
Lisbon treaty if this one had been submitted
to a referendum in the other countries ?
French people said no in 2005, when asked by referendum and so did
Holland. These people are not against European Union, they just refuse
an anti-democratic European Constitution, now called Treaty to be more
"You don't say yes to something you don't understand" said
Hugo Brady, analyst at the Centre for European Reform thinktank.

G@tto's fond of feline records, especially from vintage shots !
17 year old Bianca Passarge of Hamburg dresses up as a cat,
complete with furry tail, and dances on wine bottles.
Her performance was based on a dream and she practiced for
eight hours every day in order to perfect her dance.

What else ? Oh, yes, the Pasłęka (Passarge is as German as Bianca)
is also a river of the north of Poland !

An open air exhibition in Piazza San Carlo, Torino,
presents the work of 3 photographers who followed
the coffee trail... and made a book with the pictures
of their fabulous journey.
(ptoto by Fabrizio)
You're free to take a look to the Coffee Roots book, promoted by Lavazza.
I did it - in my quality of coffee lover - and found something curious in the Indonesian
coffee, the kopi *luwak brand.
The Coffee Critic tells you the story.
You maybe want to fly to Java tomorrow and taste it. If you like it, there are two possibilities:
you breed a luwak at home for your daily kopi or, which is easier but more expensive, you
buy your kopi at AnimalCoffee,
*Kopi luwak is a unique gourmet coffee
that is processed in the stomach of a wild
animal, after which it is hand collected
from the floor of the Sumatran jungle.

as Dylan said in 1967
Obama Wins Historic Presidential Nomination
By the way, both candidates, a "Woman" and an "African American" represent a real turning
point in american history.
Obama for President and Clinton as vice President could be the good choice to forget the
disaster of the Bush administration and restore the former US reputation.
Now let's wait and see what's going to happen in November...
