Geitsu Dock Sessions in Santander, Spain 13 July.

Marisol & I were invited to the Private View of the Giejutsu Dock Sessions exhibition in Santander which showcased some art work of Japanes artist Yasue Kobe, Spanish artists Yolanda Novoa & Damien Verloop. Our friend Pelayo Arrizabalaga played his magical mix of Sax and Vinyl samples on a portable turntable!!
A highlight of the excellent catalogue were the amizing Haikus written by Ana Rodriguez.
Here are a couple

Solo el sol
te deja hablar a solas
contra tu sombra.
(Only the Sun
lets you talk alone
against your shadow)

Tu reflejo devuelve
un rostro inverso.
Tu eres el otro.
(Your reflection returns
an inverted image.
You are the other.)

When I have figured out how to connect to the YouTube videos you will be able to see Ana reading her haikus below under Arvinder's Videos
