Pinoy Jam

Fête de la Musique in Paris today. Musicians were out to celebrate the first day of summer. Much less than the previous years, I found. That is maybe in the areas I walked past. 
This year I was involved with the Philippino community. My friend Dennis was to give a couple of concerts so I helped out, playing the external eye (and ear) during the rehearsals. Dennis gave an acoustic recital of Philippino songs, with just a guitarist to back him. Beside the fact that he was singing in Tagalog, many songs reminded me of Spanish folk songs. Quite beautiful melodies.
