Here we go again … it's hard to believe that a year has passed since the last Défi kayak Desgagnés. I could swear I can still feel the pain in my back, my butt, and my hands…
So, it's once again "All hands on deck!" to support a very worthy cause: to allow young musicians in India and in Quebec to follow their passion for music. To explore music as a way to express themselves, to connect and discover the world, to make our society a better place for all of us.
All this, while the world is hopefully finally emerging from a devastating pandemic. The last 18 months were extremely trying on all of us. But no one had to bear more of the burden than young people around the globe. They were the ones, who lost this important time in growing up during lockdowns. Isolated from their friends and in many cases under challenging domestic conditions. It's the young, who deserve that we do whatever is in our power to make it up for them. To let them emerge stronger, more resilient, and hopeful for a brighter future. A future, which they will build for all of us.
India has been particularly hard hit by the pandemic in the first half of 2021 by a wildfire spread of Covid-19 across the country. At some stages in spring, I woke up every day to more shocking news from friends and colleagues across India. There's not a single Indian family I know, who has not recently lost a beloved one or even the bread winner of the family. Again, music can be a great healer to let the society and families go through the grief cycle and build up the much-needed hope for the future.
I ask all the generous people in my network to please support this worthy cause once again.
