Marseille | The Wonderful World of Carminelitta

Event review: Lianne La Havas @ Espace Julien, Marseille

First of all, a disclaimer and a (kind of) apology: I am not a professional journalist and this quick review is not intended to be the most well-written, perfect analysis of the show I was blessed enough to witness tonight. What it is though, is an extremely biased and emotional reaction to something that touched me, made me feel good, made me want to cry and to laugh, or to put it simply, made me feel alive. After missing Lianne La Havas several times when I was in London, I finally had a chance to see her live in Marseille tonight and I had the most wonderful evening, as I knew I would. To the simple question, Is Your Love Big Enough? both Lianne and the audience replied by a beautiful, joyful and powerful YES! tonight and I need to say I was pleasantly surprised by the energy and atmosphere here in Marseille. I haven’t been to any concert in my hometown in years and I didn’t really know what to expect but my fellow Marseillais blew me away, as they apparently did Lianne. The young singer didn’t disappoint of course, and the incredible quality of her vocals and guitar playing, as well as that of the band, associated with a very receptive and involved audience made for one of the most amazing concerts I have ever attended.


Video blog: Episodes 1 & 2


I started a new adventure recently, that of video blogging. It was something I had been thinking about for a while but was not really sure how to start. I took a plunge and received some positive comments and constructive feedback, which inspired me and motivated me to keep going in that direction. It is still far from being perfect, I am aware there is a lot of room for improvement, but I still want to share the first two episodes, as they will be a testimony of my debut as a video blogger and you’ll be able to see the evolution from there (hopefully!).

The first video was basically a ‘give thanks and praise’ episode, where I mentioned people that have really helped me lately, whether knowingly or not, to grow and be where I want to be. They are a great source of support and inspiration, I simply couldn’t do it without them so I felt I needed to let them know.

The second one, which I did today, is all about Marseilles, music and poetry. I am telling you about my holidays in my hometown, as well as what I’ve been listening to and reading, which will hopefully inspire you to discover the music and books I am presenting…

Feedback is always appreciated so don’t hesitate to let me know what you think!
