It’s cliche to acknowledge this, but music is an expression that truly does connect us. A couple of weeks ago, I was visiting Mexico for the first time and took the chance to explore the infamous markets near-by the resort I was staying at. As our browsing was drawing to a close, an old Flamenco guitarist came shuffling our way. As he passed, I smiled, held my camera up and without hesitation, he began to play. He didn’t speak a word of english and I didn’t understand a word he was singing, but what connected us was music. He played through one song, as others began gathering around, I circled him clicking away. For myself, it reminded me that we all understand this art form of expression and no matter the difficulty in communicating verbally, we understand the positive vibe through a simple song. Powerful.
