LATCHO DROM DZAMASKRES FUN MUR STOKO...... GOOD JOURNEY, TRAVELLERS OF MY ROOTS.
Set off on the “drom”, place your heart on your shoulder as you carry your camera, your musical instrument, so that you miss nothing of encounters and moments shared, wanting to place your footsteps in those of other cultures, wanting to cry out loud that our differences are just our similarities…. You are cold, I shiver. You are afraid, I tremble. You are in pain, I suffer... You are my brother, my “pral”, who I will never desert.… I like your message, Jordi. I have captured it and I adhere to it boundlessly! It takes almost nothing, a child’s gaze, its little arms clinging to our clothes for everything to change, for our heart to leap in our chest, orchestrating music from other horizons… this child’s hand guides us along back roads where poverty reigns … Unprepared we enter such places that are dictated by exclusion that the wealthy direct….so we are helpless witnesses to the fireworks of divisions …The language is foreign to us but the heart understands all… we touch when we possess nothing… we kiss, we hold each other in our arms….that is where real wealth lies, in the guts and heart, that which can never be taken from us… A Manouche proverb says that the devil stays away from those who make music… another says that anything that is neither given nor shared is lost… but I prefer this one… Do not enter my soul in your shoes…. Gypsy Soul is a key for all those who want to but don’t dare… Gypsy Soul is my bible, my freedom, my solitude…. The path taken in the opposite direction of my ancestors like returning to my roots, and nuggets of joy at every crossroads... Jordi makes you believe that you have the negative but that without us there is no photo. Rub your leather as we do…. Skin captures everything your brain forbids you… it awakens the heart and guts of the human that lies within each of us! Gypsy Soul is the culmination of a truly exceptional project! Civil servants, people with decorations, tricksters twisted by truths, the raid order approved and signed by the judge! Abuse of authority!
