I love the sound of the accordion! It's a popular instrument in Istria and is playing during festive occasions. Accordion music somehow instantly creates a festive - and even romantic - atmosphere.
So true Isabel,...the sound of the accordion always seems to transport me to another time and place. It fits perfectly here in Paris, and surely must in Istria as well :)
So lovely - and I am impressed with the colours of the tricolore (truly french) .The accordion is bringing back childhood memories.My parents from the Eastern part of Europe and during festivities the accordeon was being played...and the singing started ,followed by dancing accompanied by stories being told of the "good old "times.Thenk you so much for the thoughtful comment you left on my blog yesterday.
Thank *you* Karen! The tricolor was by serendipity :)
Love it! If there is an instruments that just says "Paris" to me is the accordion. And my grandpa used to play it so I really am fascinated with it.
Thank you MA, I feel the same way! Maybe one day my son will want to learn how to play the accordion ;)
These are the most fun! Love them so so much! I can almost hear the sound!
Thank you so much Kim :)
Fun shots of your son with the accordion. I'm tapping my feet and ready to dance!
Ha! Thank you :)
Great to see the accordion here, back into action: it is a highly underrated instrument these days, what a pity. Have you listened to THE French accordion specialist Yvette Horner (she's quite a character)? Enjoy and thank you for sharing this beautiful musical moment!
Have never heard of Yvette Horner, but just looked her up... love love Sous le Ciel de Paris! Will need to buy it... thank you so much Daydreamer :)
So beautiful photos !!Have a wonderful weekend / / Linnea
Thank you so much Linneas :)
Your son may have found a calling! I like his serious expression - concentration!
These are such cool instruments, I love these pictures too!
