March 11 is the 2nd anniversary of the Tohoku Earthquake tragedy in Japan, “the fourth largest earthquake in history”.
Proceeds from Nick Wood’s song Hope, that we recorded with Julian Lennon and Tetsuya Komuro for the first anniversary in 2012, go to the Beyond Tomorrow organisation who are dedicated to helping the orphaned children of the disaster.

Another year is ending and a better one is beginning.
The past year has been very sad and very happy and everything in between.
All we ask is for a good world in the future.
Please hope for the best for all of our friends, our families, and all people and creatures on Earth.
And thank the little blue ball for keeping on spinning!
Happy New Year!
Another old photograph of mine from a trip to Oxford in the 1980s.
Regarding his great work in restoring Duke Humfrey’s Library, Sir Thomas said “that he felt well qualified to do this as he possessed four special attributes which would be advantageous: wide learning, wealth, many contacts (“a great store of honorable friends”) and plenty of free time.”
Sunday night, at the Newport Film Festival, we saw a new documentary about the Freedom Writers Diary, “a collection of journal entries written by 150 at-risk students from Long Beach, California, who were once considered ‘unteachable’. Encouraged by teacher, Erin Gruwall, and inspired by Anne Frank, the students discovered a new way of expression and began to care more about history, humanity, and perhaps, most importantly, their futures.”
This incredible story was helped to reality by our Music is Hope Foundation president John Tu.

A great time was had by all at the historic Asphaltum Springs on the Rancho La Brea on Wilshire Boulevard in Los Angeles this past weekend.
I hung out with my friend Sergio Mielniczenko, who hosts the Global Village Show on KPFK on Fridays (listen to last Fridays show for a new Meninos do Morumbi track I remixed for Music is Hope Foundation), and the Brazilian Hour on PRSS on weekends.
Here are some photos of the day, including one of me with Carnaval Muse, Sonaria.
