AIRPORT PIANO SESSION AT PALERMO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (SICILY, ITALY)

I found the piano at Aeroporto Internazionale di Palermo "Falcone Borsellino" and played a 30-minute session of my songs. The audience was bigger and more enthusiastic compared to Calgary recently. As of today, Palermo is ahead of Calgary in terms of the number of fellow travelers applauding after the „show“. The next stop will be Porto, Portugal and then Oslo, Norway

Airport piano session at Calgary Airport, Alberta, Canada

Recently I played a 30 minute set of my songs at Calgary International Airport this week while waiting to board my flight. As I played the final chords of my new piece, "To the Stars," a member of a Canadian flight crew approached me. She stopped next to my piano chair, lowered her head and whispered to me that she had been listening to my music all along, how much she liked it, and a few other gentle comments that I can't recall. She concluded with "Thank you for playing at my airport. I really thank you for that." I was so overwhelmed by her feedback that I forgot to respond and kept playing. It is rare that I perform live in front of an audience and her words touched my heart. As more and more seats filled up near the piano during my performance, I have decided that on future trips, wherever possible, I will play on public airport pianos while waiting for my flight. Somehow this event gave rise to the airport piano sessions. Looking very much forward to play during my upcoming air-travels

Calma - released on 12 February 2021

Calma is the first song of the new album planned to be released in spring 2021

Everything in this world is connected and connecting with nature, touching a tree or watching the leaves dancing in the wind can be very calming. It is so rewarding leaning back, breathing the oxygen that the trees produce, and just enjoying being part of this very special connection

Tudo neste mundo está ligado e ligado à natureza, tocar numa árvore ou ver as folhas a dançar ao vento pode ser muito calma. É tão gratificante inclinar-se para trás, respirar o oxigénio que as árvores produzem, e simplesmente desfrutar de fazer parte desta ligação muito especial
