...and it was beautiful to see and hear people of all backgrounds and ages share their love for music so openly and with so much passion. Let's make this a better world! Link to photos from the KIND20 festival of music here.
Last year I wrote a blog on the 18th December about Carl Sandburg and his dream of America.

Today, the 17th December, it is a different feeling across the world. Is this the future? Will things go back to "normal"? Will we find ourselves again attending concerts, filling theatres to capacity, changing lives through art, music, theatre, dance... what is the dream now? What will the world look like in 2 years' time?
Where will Animo be then?
Sarah and I have tried many different things that we never thought we would ever need to tackle as musicians and we are getting better, stronger, more agile. It's kind of fun to play with new gadgets, ideas, different ways of communicating our music but it's not the "real deal"; not yet.
We can't wait to play live again; our bodies are sore with the anticipation. At our August 'Jailbreak' concert we felt the audience's joy, relief and also disbelief: "are hard times over?".
We are with you to the end of this year and next, and the year after that. Animo will speak from and for the soul; that was our motto in 2018 and it still is:)
It is time to take it easy. Close eyes and breathe. Spring is nearly here and nature will regenerate.
