Bella Ciao!!

by: Jennifer Richardson on

Anyone who has participated in our Singing in Tuscany or Singing in Siena events over the years would appreciate Bella Ciao.We have had the pleasure of singing it with Kavisha Mazzella, Rachel Hore, Riccardo Tesi and Ginevra di Marco plus of course Paolo Turchi and friends at Casa Gialla and unforgettable performances by Damiano Donati at Montestigliano!

Bella Ciao is historically known as the show which marked the startup of Italian Folk revival.   

Now these legends in Italian Folk music are making a 50yrs anniversary album.

Bali Blessings: Day nine

by: Jennifer Richardson on

Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.

Brian Tracy

I like this quote. It is a blessing to have an attitude of gratitude. A few months ago my work contract with my main source of income fell through. When it happened it was traumatic because I wasn't sure how I would survive, but now I am grateful because I can now go forth and do what I love. I now 'have a life that works' and am based in a place (Bali) that understands and supports this lifestyle of the entrepreneurial gypsy.

Singabout started up 10 years ago as a hobby. I wanted to go out and discover new tribes, to dance the dances and sing their songs. It has been an incredible learning and I am so very grateful to all of you who came on that original journey and those who continue to come on these magical journeys. You have all taught me so much. I look forward to the next 10 years.
