Concert and sketches.

Sketched on the Subway on the way to concert of Federico Aubele in Brooklyn. First was young group from Montreal, so I sketched them a little, than it became too dark.

Federico Aubele was amazing, he mixes sounds of the street with traditional Argentinian tango and longing guitar. It is especially touching for me, because I am on the 3-d book of Carlos Ruiz Zafon, and my heart is connected to Barcelona for now. Aubele from Buenos Aires and lived and created music in Barcelona, and so is Natalia Clavier, the magic voice of many of his songs.
 Here is one of his songs from new Album, I bought there.


I could not help it swaying along with music.

 A bit rough, on the way home. Came home around 1 am, what a youngster. I will draw my impression in ink, as soon as I'll gain a bit of freedom.

what a great posting this is: the music, the photos, the sketches, and the good news about finding the books of Carlos Ruiz Zafon, finding connections. ¡Fantastico! the sketches and the life story here are very inspiring.

I always love your sketches, Nikira. What kind of sketchbook is this?

Nikira said...

Thank you very much, John! It was wonderful experience. I want to do drawing on one of the songs. And Zafon is wonderful writer, I like his colorful complicated language with many hard words, extra fun, peculiar translation, I think. Many words I know from Russian, same roots, I guess, from Latin.
