Springtime in Copenhagen

The Cph Dox Film Festival is still running, so you can go and see some shows and films for once in a lifetime. And this is what counts. Take the chances and get some unique experiences. Check out the full program.

And then we are on the highway to summertime: Put the watches one Hour forward the night before Sunday, and suddenly we almost have the long summer nights, and we will sit outside with our cold beer, and once again feel that life is worth living. Winter is gone 😀
And things are opening up for spring time. For example Reffen Food Court at Refshaleøen in the weekend. So get out there and find some food. Normally there are DJ´s and other performances.

And Rest in Peace Tyk Mesteren. You were one of the good guys.

Northern Africa is still a very male dominated area. Therefore it is very unique that Asmâa Hamzaoui has started her own Gnawa group Bnat Timbouktou as the first female gimri musician in Morocco. Gnawa is a rich tradition where suggestive, ritual music is combined with poetry and dance to reach trance. Of course its at Alicecph
