Utopia made possible

If you decide to visit Portugal be sure to include the Schist Villages region in your itinerary. You’ll be doubly fortunate if you happen to be there during the X JAZZ festival
I visited the schist villages and caught X JAZZ this past week but then they say I was born with the silver spoon in my mouth. 
Evan Parker, the great British saxophone player, directed a one-week workshop for musicians and concerts took place in several villages around the region, as part of this year’s edition. A eulogy to art, ecology, entrepreneurship and social responsibility, proving that utopia is possible.
Ask for information about the next X JAZZ here and be sure to attend it.

If you can read Portuguese see a different version of this article here. Photos of the event here.

Such an inspiring, learning and, I dare saying, moving experience.
