But actually most of those professional musicians make their money teaching amateur-musicians. Most of them still perform although the money is bad and appreciation is not much […]
An adaption of E. Grieg’s famous piece „in the hall of the mountain king“ from the Peer Gynt Suite. Actually Grieg sent P. Gynt already to Africa, but only to the Maghreb. I sent him a bit further to sub Sahara Africa. More precisely to a region in upper Guinea „Hamana“. Originally the piece is […]
