A dream, a caravan....

One of my most precious childhood memories






Cross-legged in front of a caravan, placed there in a garden, arriving from nowhere a Brazilian shows up, in Tunis, and starts telling to the 4-year-old girl that I was, stories from Rio de  Janeiro...Mexico City, Egypt...the wide world. With his puppets and his caravan, it was my first ever encounter with the other and his winner world.


Since then, I haven't stopped traveling the world in search of musical treasures.  Sounds have no identity and move freely with the sand and the wind. It is men who give them passports and make them tell stories.  "Mayssa's Caravan" finds and tells them, making them finally known to the world.
