A series of anecdotes with or without any connection to the running of a restaurant.

Something to share...

We went to the Sage last night to watch the African Rebels tour. I couldn't help taking a video of one of Africa's most influential singers, Mali's Salif Keita. Sorry about the camera shaking, after all I am 55 tomorrow...

His song, Folon (In the past...) sends shivers in people's back even if, like me they don't understand the lyrics. His voice is so penetrating and his music is a mix of traditional African and Western folk.
I thought you'd like to listen to it.




In the meantime, sorry for deserting this blog. I tend to post in my restaurants blog more often nowadays.

Happy Birthday, Creme!

Thanks for posting this, love the music. But also thanks for showing me how to mute the other music - I like it, but it drives me crazy since I'm usually already listening to music when I visit - so I tend to just beat a hasty retreat!

Oh Salif - I remember him!
I worked on one of his album sleeves years back. I think it was called 'Amen' if my memory serves me well.

It doesn't normally.

Serve me well that is! :O)

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
and now each time a comment is added I get
four emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Thanks a lot!

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just
your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
However imagine if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, "pop"!
Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could undeniably be one of the
very best in its field. Good blog!
