Sailing Stones residency workshop was a different experience, Tunisia and all the Tunisian musicians were really inspiring. We did not expect such harmony between artists, and that was the perfect number of musicians. The festival and all the people we met, played and composed music with were amazing and the choice of musicians and bands as well.
The cave area in Dahmani was really great and we had no distraction to play and produce music. We think that model of residency should be applied widely and in different places; it opens doors for future collaborations between artists. There are some ideas we wish to chase, but nothing is concrete at the moment.
