Sixto Rodriguez in concert at the Roundhouse

We wrote about Rodriguez in August, after seeing the film Searching for Sugar Man. (see trailer above.)
Last night we saw the great man in concert. What a man! He still looks and sounds like a star. A true original. A man with soul!!

We just bought this great book. It's packed full of wonderful images and descriptions. We're already huge fans of the very inspiring blog of the author, who's supercool. Check it out here. Also see the book trailer here.

We wrote about Django Reinhardt a long time ago, but feel he needs another mention. Listen to him playing with Stephane Grapelli - J'attenderai Swing here. Amazing!! Also, some info on their collaboration here. Ps. how cool does he look?

Talking of Francoise Hardy...

Do you know about her son Thomas Dutronc? We like this .

Oma & Bella

Oma and Bella is a film about two friends and Holocaust survivors who live together in Berlin. The film is made by Oma's grandaughter Alexa Karolinski, who follows the two wonderful ladies during their daily lives, where they talk, amongst other things, about the food that they cook together that bonds them to their memories, identity and childhood. This all culminates in the most beautifully designed cookbook. See the trailer to the film and more about the cookbook here.
