Occitania is a territory, a homeland, a language and a way of life. The region is located in southern Europe (mostly France) where Occitan was historically spoken and is still a second language for many. The music genre, La Nouvelle Chanson Occitane, flourished in the 1960s alongside the Occitanist nationalist movement. It shared the Occitan language, history and culture with a new audience.

In 2015 I visited the city of Niš in Serbia. I was the guest of musician Dejan Ilijic, and his brother Alen, the avant-garde composer. I sketched at gigs, and talked to poets, artists and filmmakers. I learnt about Tito and Yugoslavia. I drank rakija and listened to fresh new music. This joblot of records from the Radio-Televizija Beograd and Jugoton labels captures a slice of Yugoslav life and music.

I would like to spend a month in Paris. My days would be full of sketching, visiting galleries and hunting for vinyl in record shops. In a recent joblot I found a 7” single from the MGM film soundtrack An American In Paris. It has inspired me find other records from Americans who have called Paris their home.
