FIL2012 Scenes: Bombino





Bombino, led by a Taureg guitarist, playing desert rock with protest themes against the governments of Mali and Niger were in town last night as well. Taureg rebels just recently declared independence from Mali on April 6th, forming the state of Azawad...and that region is potentially facing a major humanitarian disaster and unrest. Made me wish I could understand the lyrics to their songs last night.  Read more about Azawad here.

FIL2012 Scenes: Beats Antique

Modern technology meets world music, tribal themes and on stage performance with Beats Antique. Not a bad way to start off FIL2012 last night.

We started planning our next trip today...and it's going to be pretty awesome. Hear are the things on the agenda thus far, tickets for both purchased and locked in:

1. Watching the Seattle Sounders play at home vs. the LA Galaxy

Can't wait for this trip. Two great events and a city that I've never been to (Portland).

Balboa Jozy Reunion


 It's been a while since Jozy got to enjoy Lake Balboa out in Hot Springs Village. Here are a couple photos taken from a brief trip to the beach today. She was one happy dog.
