Music is the key

Hola amigos de Vida Verde,

we have been having some great weeks here at school.
Most of the students have been staying in Quito for quite some time and we had good times at school, in after-school activities as well as on the weekends with trips to different places.

Although some students headed off for their travels through the world again, something is still with us - the music from Chikara.

Chikara is from Japan and had first inspired teachers and students with his music a couple weeks ago when he gave a little concert on a Thursday night.

He has been sweetening our break during lessons ever since, at least once a week. Here we sit and watch him play in our backyard of the school. Sometimes we would sing along the chorus if we knew the song.

Only last week he got some support in the vocals part

when Ilona, from the Netherlands, would sing with him during a lessons break. While the audience had tea and nachos they both sang some familiar songs.

Now we are looking forward to a concert that will take place in the nearby Cafelibro on Friday night. Ilona and Chikara will be on stage together with 3 other musicians to give a concert to whoever wants to listen to some great songs by Oasis, the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Ben E.King and some songs from the Musicians native countries.

We can't wait!!! So, if anyone of you out there is around please come and join!

Hasta luegeo...
