Listen to Manu Dibango. Close the info (WHO recommendation)!

(B2) There comes a time when we all have to go. Manu Dibango, the wise, singing man, bequeathed us a tremendous joie de vivre. Listen, listen again...

I won't go any further in the biography of this eclectic, seductive jazmann, moving from sax to piano with dexterity and pleasure. Anyone who has ever seen him on stage can attest to that. Read also on Swiss television radio or RFi Music or listen to it again at Jazz in Marciac.

The abuse of information is harmful to health

In the morning, or in the evening, this is better than all the radio and television flashes, which are sometimes more depressing than anything else (1). It is moreover a recommendation express from the World Health Organization (WHO) which is often passed.

« Soothe your worries and calm your restlessness by spending less time with yourself and your loved ones watching or listening to disturbing media reports.

(Nicolas Gros-Verheyde)

  1. If you have the choice, listen to the Belgian radio and TV channels (RTBF, RTL, Bx1) which are less 'stressful' and more 'positive' than the French radio and TV channels (France-Inter and France24 included). Some ill-advised colleagues seem to take a certain morbid pleasure in counting down (even accentuating in the phrasing) the number of dead and sick the day before, rather than talking to the living. Need we remind you that in these times of confinement, radio and television have an essential role not only for primary information, but also for pedagogy, and to make confined life bearable. This for many more weeks (mid-May if we are optimistic, end of June if we are less so).

    Hello to your team and thank you for the tribute to Manu Dibango! Your advice is excellent. I didn't expect to find you in this musical field which particularly affects Brussels and its African community!
