July is around the corner and somehow it is the only true start of summer for me. I haven’t gone on a real holiday since ages so usually, most of my summermonths I spend working on my music, teaching English, performing and performing as a streetartist. Yess! You gotta pay the rent, but I love playing for people. Busking is one of my favorite things to do, I always feel so free and it is so rewarding, because if people stop to listen to you, they genuinely listen to you. And I love luring them into my world, even if it is for only a short while. I like the summervibe, even though this Spanish heat can get quite obnoxious at times.
Madrid is treating me very nicely, I must say: I am performing on a regular basis, with a performance at the Dutch Embassy on Kingsday as a small highlight. I’m a happy girl. This month there are several events coming up, that I look forward to: I am collaborating with The Circular Project. A project led by Paloma García, an incredible woman who is the driving force behind the sustainable fashion movement here in Spain. I will perform for them on the 3d of July at their press conference at the Swedish Embassy (I know, haha, it’s becoming ‘a thing’ ) and on the 13th of July, when they are presenting their anual Slow Fashion-Show at Matadero here in Madrid. Honoured and really looking forward to this collab!
Then, the 22nd I am thrilled to announce that I will be playing at Café La Palma again. I love this venue! If you are around, please come and join us, it’s going to be a wonderful night with some surprises.
Furthermore, I will continue working on the album this summer. Some really beautiful turns have come about. But more about that, in my next blog.
Have an incredible summer you guys!
