“The music is a machine to suppress the time.”
Monday the 14th of October at 9.30 p.m., the AbanoRitz hosts the Thailand International Concert in her spacious hall. Piano and percussions will be encircled by traditional thai dancers to let us discover a multi-ethnic, pacific, tolerant culture based on mutual respect for oneself and others.
“Sanuk” in Thailand means enjoy life, live in joy, not take too many thoughts, take life with philosophy, without worrying too much about tomorrow: all the things of life, diseases and everyday problems as well, should be taken with a good dose of sanuk.
So let’s enjoy this foretaste of Thailand, let the music lead our minds to discover a country so hospitable and rich in history, hypnotized by the dancers’ movements and by the bright colours of their traditional costumes.
