One Song, 27 Countries: Muzikifi Preview #1
Like you, I jump around my room singing to a spoon, the closest thing I own to a stage microphone.
But, unlike you–unless you’re more like me than I think–occasionally I feel a stirring in my heart so powerful that I can’t sit still. So I close my laptop, look up and think: "The real world still exists!"
And then I do something insane, to prove it. Something no algorithm could ever predict.
On summer holiday once, when everyone else was out of the house, I picked up my friend’s older brother’s guitar, and wrote a song.
And I thought…
If I did what The Beatles did, I wouldn’t be doing what The Beatles did, deep down. Because what The Beatles did deep down, was do what no one else had ever done before.
They formed a band, with guitars and a bass and drums. Fifty, sixty years later, people are still doing what The Beatles did on the surface–forming old fashioned bands–but they’re not doing what The Beatles did, deep down, which was do what no one else had ever done before. They’re just being copycats.
So I went to the craziest places on earth, found myself in hopeless situations where I still managed to rely on my hope to get me through– and found the most fascinating people making the most amazing music, who added their own flourish, and a piece of themselves, to my song.
In other words, I'm getting the world to sing and play on my song.
