Nearly 5 Years ago I visited Paris for two days and made this film. It is a very special place and I could see and sense the challenges it faced but equally admired the diversity of it's population and freedom it allowed it’s’ people to express. It's a very sad day for all of us as this very freedom has been attacked in such a callous way by just a few people. We must not let them win and so we must all stand together to never let this happen ever again.
I thought I'd relax and catch a weekend in Paris with my family, just a few photos and videos for the album. When I got there I just couldn't resist. I found myself live on national TV as a roller blader 'Taig Khris' jumped off the Eiffel Tower in midst of thousands of people, chased by a gangster as he and his friends played one of those gambling games on the street, interrogated by the friendly and professional police outside the Arc de Triomphe and had to show them my photos, promptly let go with a smile of course. So much to see and do, Paris is one historical, great and magnificent city of contrasts. You can download this now:)
I don't know the street singer's name and have credited him as 'the street artist', after some research the soccer freestyler is Iya Traore (iyatraore.com/), never seen anything like it before. Hope you enjoy!!! :) Dedicated to world peace, our future generations, John Lennon (imaginepeace.com/)
