Thanks to my friend/partner Silvia, I can go to see movies just at the “begin” of their opening to the world…this time I could not wait to see Tom Cruise in a “Rock and Roll” version…like always, when he acts in a “unique” role, he amaze me…actually, the best part of the movie is when he interprets legendary rock tracks such as Bon Jovi’s “Dead Or Alive” or “Pour some sugar on me”…almost 50, he is an amazing, hot, Rock & Roll Star!

“When Cruise started this project more than a year ago, he didn’t know whether he could really sing. “Adam Shankman, the director, asked me if I could carry a tune,” Cruise tells me later. “I said, ‘We’ll see, won’t we? This is either going to work or it’s going to be dreadful.’ ”

Anoushka Shankar and the power of music


I’m always happily surprised when I have the opportunity to discover new ways to share and mix different cultures, bringing the best of this world, together.

The daughter of Ravi Shakar and amazing prodigy of the sitar, has always explored the possibilities of the classical sitar within other musical genres and traditions. For her seventh album, Anoushka Shankar sets her sights on the links between Hindu and flamenco music, and  turns to producer Javier Limon, one of the most important key figure in the development of flamenco fusion in the past decade. Although her sitar playing remains the focal point of the album, she is joined by superb musicians and the results are as intriguing as they are beautiful…a great result of the power of music, from India to Spain!
