Hi beautiful friends !
Lots of adventures ahead ! Headed to Ankara, Turkey next week as the film I directed “We Came Home” is in the Ankara International Film Festival ! Then I go straight to Somali via Nairobi to play a music festival. Hopefully will have a few days in Nairobi, Kenya to visit an Animal Park and see what is happening at JGI (Jane Goodall Institute) Nairobi.
Then in April the film will screen at both Cleveland International Film Festival and Al Jazeera International Documentary Film Festival in Doha, Qatar. After that I will go to Kabul to screen the film and perform at Sound Central Rock Festival.
More exciting news in May to come 😉 ….

My friend Maxime’s friend Thomas in Arcachon was playing this beautiful guitar part. I was really moved by his playing, and he said “Take it its yours”. So I just finished the lyrics and vocals, and recorded this demo last night in Kabul. Hope you enjoy it <3 xo ariana
