Live at Cafe Remember in 2014
This new café seems to be designed for music-lovers. Thanks to wooden walls, ceiling and flooring, beautiful wooden tables and chairs, the sound of our music was soft and round. There is a stage for live events on the second floor. We were the first group to play there. The audience – of all ages - could enjoy a meal, a cake or a coffee while listening, and the music was sent downstairs through speakers. The food was good and .. French! We loved the Café, and we will be back !

Gifu city is a beautiful town, surrounded by mountains. It was snowing on that day. There was a Crepe festival party in the afternoon, in a café downtown called All Round, organized by GIFRANCE, the French-Japanese association of Gifu, and we played some songs there. Great atmosphere, lovely people, good beignets and crepes made by Gilles Guerrin, who is a great organizer of French events in Gifu and the founder of Gifrance. In the evening, Open Sesame was full of people, thanks to Gilles and his friends. People who were at the Crepe party and others came too. We had a great time and could meet wonderful and warmhearted people. Some of them work hard in the field of cultural exchange and society.

We arrived in the morning in Anjo city, and after a great lunch made by our friend in her apartment, we went with her, to rehearse the 3 songs that she was going to play with us in the evening, on her violin. The rehearsal was done in a cultural center, in a sound proof room, and we played for 3 hours non-stop. Marki had written the violin part and her playing gave a new dimension to ours, very contemporary and interesting. In the evening, the café was full of people, friends, clients of the café, people who came to see us for the first time.
