A place that I want to go to in the future

 

My first ever favorite song was a jazz song when I was 3 years old, but my love for jazz has only started when I was 12 years old and started learning the drums. I liked jazz because of my father who plays jazz everyday and it’s also the reason why started playing the drums.At least once in my life I want to go to an international jazz festival somewhere in places like Copenhagen, Denmark where I could go to a jazz fest with my father and brother.

Since the 1960’s, Copenhagen has been home to a flourishing jazz community. Many American jazz musicians have spent some time immersed in the Copenhagen jazz scene, so it’s no surprise that the city hosts one of the world’s best jazz festivals.

Every July, roughly 260,000 music-lovers gather to enjoy 1,100 shows in cafes, in concert halls, throughout the city’s streets and in massive open-air venues. The festival has events catered to everyone from children to seniors, proving that jazz really is timeless.

Blackbird

 

Blackbird

The Beatles

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise

Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these sunken eyes and learn to see
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to be free

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

Blackbird fly, blackbird fly
Into the light of the dark black night

“Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly”

Paul McCartney wrote this about the civil rights struggle for blacks after reading about race riots in the US to support for black Americans, particularly women (“bird” is British slang for “woman”). He later explained that he chose a more poetic approach to the song – rather than singing “black woman living in Little Rock” – so that listeners could apply its message to their own lives.
