Darling bloggers and readers,

I do apologise for not blogging for so long. It has been a crazy few months. The Sao Paulo Festival (Portugal) finished a month ago and we are already in deep preparations for the Giez Festival (Switzerland) which will happen this October. There will be loads of fun, music and net working.

I would like to thank everybody who came to our Sao Paulo Festival, proudly sponsored by the Mazzeri family, Milano. Prior to the festival, I have never been to Portugal, ever. It is a most wonderful country with so much to offer. I am surprised that there aren’t as many tourists there as, say Italy or Spain. They have great climate, wonderful people, and most importantly delicious wines! But do beware of taxi drivers in Lisbon – always make sure that they have the metres on.

We have had the privilege of having guest artists like Dominika Anna Rosiek, Simon Lane, Marino Bedetti, and myself, each giving an evening recital during the course of the festival. We also invited a young and talented fado singer Luis Caeiro for the first night.

A million thanks and we look forward to seeing you all next year!
