About Sintra

Music for human rights continues its project in Portugal this June, and the good people from Farra Fanfarra gave us the best hospitality we could have ever imagined. In Sintra, everything seems at least a little bit magical. Of course, the people are as pleasant as they could be, but the microclimate makes this almost fairytale-like atmosphere. You could see the sunset on one side and a cloudy and foggy mountain on the other side of the horizon. Step into the shadows, and the cold, windy breeze will make you chill, but if you stepped one meter into the sun, you will feel its heat.

Salty trip to the Dead Sea

Here comes the day to pause bands and media team assignments to go out of the village for a naturalistic trip.  As I had never been to the Dead Sea before and all I heard about it was the usual popular stories regarding how you could read a book by sitting naturally on the water because…

Echoes of Yad Vashem

We were talking about Yad Vashem for days before ceremony happened, as it seems. The sands of Jerusalem were in the air again the morning of the ceremony, and our colorful group’s visit to the famous museum would be the main topic of the day. Somehow, we just felt the heaviness of that sand. The…
