Dácil and Yone having fun in the car

Dácil absolutely adores her big brother. She enjoys his company thoroughly and they have a few special games together which Dácil doesn’t play with anyone else.

Here’s a rare fun bro/sis pic

Yone at his first concert

27 04 2016

Yone has been asking to come to a classical concert with a ‘big orchestra’ for some time now. Not that there is a lack of classical music in our family: he plays the saxophone in the local brass band, performing many times, even in the big concert hall in Santa Cruz. He sometimes comes to my concerts, we play a lot of music at home… But a concert at the Festival de Música de Canarias is special.

The yearly festival was celebrating its 32nd edition. We went to hear the Budapest Festival Orchestra, playing Brahms’ 1st piano concerto and Prokofiev’s 5th symphony. They treated us with a very special encore: all the members of the orchestra put down their instruments, took out a score and started singing a 4 voice Russian litany. Amazing.

For the occasion, Yone decided to wear a white shirt, a white waistcoat from his tails, with a silver pocket watch, apo’s favourite tie and a bowler hat.

Dácil’s most precious gift

27 04 2016

We had a great family reunion to celebrate Dácil’s birthday. Great weather, lunch in the garden… at some point we switched on the turntables, Jorge started spinning Santana, Yayo took out the drum, other family members found various percussion instruments and we gave Dácil a blast for a full hour. The sun set, it turned dark, and we didn’t even notice… I can’t think of a single thing that would make her happier.
