This week, Tuesday, a friend of mine invited me to Carturesti for a session of African stories. The storyteller was Guy from Ivory Coast, who came to Cluj-Napoca few months ago and he made a nice atmosphere, especially with his "drum" (I don't know the name) which attracted many hands. Search for him, because he is an interesting story and is learning Romanian quite fast.

Double bass

When I arrived in Cluj I participated to a baptism. After the religious ceremony everybody went to a restaurant for a small party where three gypsies played a really cool music. They are from Mociu, Cluj district, and they are quite famous in this region. The man who plays double bass really impressed me with his passion for his music and even though he was really short in comparison with his instrument, he was the master.
