Over the last few years I have been travelling to work with local musicians all over the world. I have performed with raga musicians in India and Nepal, with circus artists in Ethiopia, with gnawa musicians in Morocco and Palestinians in a refugee camp in Lebanon. I played with traditional musicians in Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania and jazz musicians in New York, Reykjavik and Paris.
When I was asked to go to Morocco to work with a gnawa musician, with whom I had no common language, I decided to use the opportunity to learn some French while I stayed in Paris for a while. I asked people I met: «What is your favourite word in French?». I collected many beautiful words from the Parisians; some of them can be heard in the song.
