The proven idea of happiness [full soundtrack and film videos]

YouTube is, as usual, an incredible source of talented musicians and actors! 🔍😍

I was looking for beautiful film soundtracks and I came across this amazing film called ‘ideas of happiness’.

#film #filmproduction #soundtrackZachary Nelson

First, let me tell you a little bit about the film soundtrack. The selected soundtrack playlist comes from a Berlin-based band called ‘Fewjar’ playing in multiple genres such as Electro, 80s, Rock, Progressive, Psychedelic, Crossover, Triphop. You can follow them on their various social networks by checking the links in their Youtube description below their videos. Now, sit back, relax, be patient and wait a minute for the first song to kick off fully! Don’t fall asleep, though! 😪🌟

What do you think about their music? If you liked it, download their songs from Itunes, Amazon or Bandcamp! 👍😉

Now, as you may have guessed, the film is also in German. But don’t worry because it is subtitled in English. Feeling relieved?😌 It’s a very well done psychological thriller. Although it’s my film genre, I truly enjoyed it and hope you will, too!

If you liked it, support the film project: https://www.patreon.com/Zeo

You can give as little as $1 per month so you won’t be too much out of pocket!💰

Fundraising gigs’campaign for abortion rights (IE)

For those who do not live in Ireland, you may not know that still up to today abortion isn’t allowed under most circumstances. Women are discouraged to abort regardless of circumstances and must travel to UK or other EU countries if they want to abort.

The gigs took place last Friday 10th March 2017 at Sin é pub, Dublin 1 and were organised by Bitches Brew & F-Festival celebrating women in the arts:

http://www.ffestival.net/about-us/

The purpose of this night was to fund raise for the Repeal movement and bring awareness of the Irish law in terms of women’s abortion rights 🔥👍. To get a better understanding of what this law entails and follow the campaign on social media, check these leaflets 👇

reasons to fight for women's abortion rights and repeal the eight amendment

If you are living in Ireland or are Irish living abroad, sign up for this petition requesting the law to be reviewed and giving women the rights to abort if they choose to 👊:

The event gathered four bands, mostly girls’ bands playing various music styles such as pop, blues, roots folk, rock, hard rock. I arrived a little late for the event and also left early, so I only recorded two bands but I will share with you some videos of the other two bands I missed. Bear in mind that the venue is very narrow in width, so I wasn’t always able to film from the best angle. Apologies for this ! For the YouTube videos I made, I have indicated underneath the respective bands’ Facebook fan pages if you’d like to follow them.

Which one you like most and why? Are you going to like any of their Facebook fan page(s)?

I will start to share with you a snippet I shared on my Instagram account:

And now full songs recorded or found on YouTube:

These are two Youtube videos I found of the other bands I have missed:

Prince: Sign o’the Times live concert and DJ set

I hope you have celebrated well new year’s eve 🍾🎉! I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous new year 2017 😘🍀🌟🎊!

new-year-2017For my part, I decided to celebrate new year’s eve a little bit in advance 😂! I went to this tribute to Prince with DJ Al Murphy playing lots of Prince’s tunes and then watched the live recording of his 1987 Sign o’ the Times tour on Friday 30th December 2016 at The Sugar Club, Dublin (Ireland).

You can find more information about it in this  event page:

https://www.facebook.com/events/228456610900746/

Here are recordings in picture and audio of the DJ’s act.

Now, I’d like to share with you some videos taken at the event. I would like to apologise if the last video’s soundtrack isn’t from Prince! I experienced few technical issues trying to publish a live YouTube video and it ended up recording the visuals without the sound 🤔😤!  So I picked a nice song in a similar style to add to the video 🙂😉. Anyway, I hope you will enjoy them!

Eclectic DJ and reggae band at Favela Chic Paris (2016)

This was a rather unplanned night out I went for on Wednesday 25th May 2016. Had dinner across the street and was attracted to this bar and restaurant. So, I came in and must say this was a great idea!

reggae

 

This ‘Favela Chic’ club isn’t only playing – as the name suggests – Brazilian sounds, but a great variety of world music.

Here are few pictures of the venue, which I thought is quite rather original:

The main focus for this night was on DJ Arthur Chap. If you want to know more about him, check this link:

There was also a guest reggae band. Unfortunately, the band name is unknown to me.

Here are few videos taken at the event of both DJ and band performances:

Sankofa Soul Contest Paris 2016 – Semi-final 2

Here is an event I had booked in advanced that I found advertised on Facebook. There were offering two options: dinner + live performances (25  Euros) or live performances alone (pre-sale for 10 Euros and at the door for 12 Euros). I took the first option and didn’t regret it as the ‘Petite Halle’ concert room was full and I would have otherwise kept standing for 4 hours!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

For those who would like to watch the soul singers’ final (10 singers selected from the two previous semi-finals), it will take place on Saturday 18th June at 8.30pm in the ‘New Morning’ concert place, 7 rue des petites écuries, 75010 Paris, France. There is no dinner option for the final but there are seats, so come early and pre-buy your ticket if  you want to sit! Tickets on pre-sale are for 14 Euro.

Now, here are pictures of the candidates singing at the contest’s semi-finals 2:
