Blaze memoirs

I know Blaze has been over for 2 good months now, and there isn't much of a point in writing this post - but maybe this is just about the time it takes to recover from the breathtaking performance David Byrn donated to us during this year's closing event on August 3rd!

Truth is that we have been head down into the Autumn season, and now already starting to think about the next Blaze, even though it's not even Christmas yet! Thinking about it brings back a bit of melancholy - most of all about the dancing outdoors and in the Barbican Hall, and a summer that is now definitely over. Good times... hehe!

OK, too much? I know, I know... And - to be honest - we are not really sad about anything, since we've been kept warm by a phantasmagoric kick start of the Autumn, with Orchestre Poly Rythmo, Paban Das Baul, Neko Case and very soon Magma + JP Massiera & Chrome Hoof!!

But for the nostalgic hearts, here's a freshly edited video of our free event in Gillett Square on June 27th (don't believe the date on the video, I'm pretty sure it wasn't July - I was there!!). It had never been so hot and sunny in Dalston - and check out the tropical storm in the end!! The magic of Cuba!

Thanks Rachel for shooting and editing it! Enjoy...
