Day 20 of the Covid19 quarantine: "Piu Lontano", by Jaune Toujours, performed by Piet Maris.
about an Italian guy who just thought he would be crossing Belgium on his way to somewhere else and better, to get stuck in the Borinage, a mining region in Belgium, having met the love of his life there... A song about migration and different reasons for migrating... And about how one can look back on life, on how things turned out...

Day 14 of the Covid19 quarantine: "Mooi Weer" by Jaune Toujours, performed by Piet Maris.
Partially about war in former Yugoslavia, end of the '90's, but especially about the contrast between the different situation at some 1000s of kilometers distance: the same beautiful spring weather under the same blue sky, but within a totally different peace/war situation... And not a minor detail, with the frontiers and checkpoints completely closed, leaving people on their own, in unacceptable conditions... Nothing's changed: war's still going on somewhere, and even if ours is mainly against a virus, people are still stuck at borders ànd outside, on the streets, in unacceptable conditions...
From the album Barricade (2004) by Jaune Toujours
