Chaabi hours

I felt so good, sometimes ago, last summer, when browsing YouTube, I came across a video of “ El Gusto” Group Orchestra, during its passage at the RockefellerCenter, in New York, taken by aficionado of the Chaabi Music of Algiers. Which exhibition unfortunately I missed, alas! Then, after show, it’s averred to be a grandiose manifestation of a coterie of remaining talented artists , who were still alive, belonging from all of the communities that existed in Algiers before the events of 1962. Which venue reunites them to un orchestra,  thanks to a lit’le bout- de- femme, named Safinez with a tremendous talent, for a unique Concert in the history of the Chaabi music of all times. And that event will make history for the next coming generations of fans, for sure.

Save the Algerian Goldfinch” El Mackneen”

Hello there, few more days, and spring is here!
“So what!  is it insane to mule about ? to have put it in a cage? it’s my pet!” you may said that, it’s your right, and I totally agree with you. You can even have an alligator, or a boa constrictor with free shipping delivered directly to your door. So, are you ready to set him free, the little dude? not the alligator, I mean the Goldfinch? you do? do you know that there is more than a hundred thousand birds “Mackneen”, a goldfinch in cages, just in Algiers, the Capital of Algeria only to cite it as an example, besides the rest of cities in the country. So, imagine that’s actually exist one bird per a cage in a house, then if we count per habitat, then we do the Math, provided that just as  it is existential for you to be free, and leave free, think about “it”, so be the first, get some guts open the damn cage,  and just do it!  just like that: and baby fly, yes baby, fly!

I saw in YouTube a video of some teens  freeing a couple of goldfinch from  cage. Provided that someone stumble upon my blog and by chance had read my post in the past, or by instinct,  took action just like that, it makes my day and I am happy.
