You are your song...

“As a songwriter, if you can touch people 
and make them feel a little less alone in the world, 
then you've done your job." 
Tom Coltrane

About Pedro de Alcantara:
Pedro’s recently released CD, "Songs & Soundscapes,” is the result of three years of sonic adventures, it contains fifteen improvisations and compositions that have been variously described as “tribal classic,” “shamanic jazz,” and “the universal folk music.” Read more about Pedro’s published books, music, etc., on his website and see his recent CD on this youtube link. http://www.pedrodealcantara.com/ and http://www.youtube.com/user/integratedmusician?feature=mhee

We are grateful to Pedro for taking time from his busy schedule of writing and traveling to share his passion with Gifted in France.

See you soon.
