Radio FIP

There used to be a time (Highschool time that was) that I spoke a bit of French. I was pretty good at it but didn’t develop my skills.

To not forget everything I learnt AND to listen to beautiful, jazzy- or world- and often unique music, I often listen to French radiostation FipFIP (originally France Inter Paris) is a French radio network, founded in 1971. It is part of the Radio France group.

Check it out, what do you think?

Music duel: Jewish klezmer vs Gipsy music – Train de vie

MovieTIP:
Train de vie, Train of life, (1998) by Radu Mihaileanu; In 1941, the inhabitants of a small Jewish village in Central Europe organise a fake deportation train so that they can escape the Nazis and flee to Palestine. 

I love this movie! And I really like Shlomo.

Schlomo - Train de Vie

The coolest part of the movie is for me the music duel between the Jewish & the Gipsies.
AAAH That’s TOTALLY my dancing music!
It makes me  feel like partying & dancing barefoot in the gras in the sunshine when I hear that!

 

For my Portugesa A.! Or Bela Monstro as she’d like to call herself. CHECK IT OUT!
