Viral Session napříč zeměkoulí

Jedinečný projekt společného hraní napříč zeměkoulí se uskutečnil v koronavirové době za účasti 141 hudebníků a tanečníků v režii polských organizátorů. Set skladeb se skládal z následujících tunů: Earl’s Chair / Sporting Paddy / Silver Spear. Mezi umělci jsem našel několik jmen hudebníků z Česka a také několik hudebníků a tanečníků, které znám z naší letní školy a kteří jsou buď z Polska anebo Srbska.
Celý projekt je zakončen krátkou výstižnou a moc krásnou myšlenkou  ALL UNITED DESPITE THE DISTANCE.

Viral Sessions: Chapter 2 – 141 artists, 5 cats and 1 parrot grand Irish session

United despite the distance, above borders and differences, Viral Sessions is a collaborative folk music and dance project, an inclusive, informal gathering of artists from all over the globe. It is an undertaking unique in its plurality, playfulness and a universal goal – to warm people’s hearts, lift their spirits and cheer them up in the troubling moments of isolation caused by the global pandemic.

It all started as a spontaneous intiative to bring performers together for the St. Patrick’s Day 2020. As the first video went viral, we (Vanessa Medecin, Jan Gałczewski and Jakub “Goldfinch” Szczygieł) received an astonishing response from all over the world. Out of this unbelievable enthousiasm and the apparent global need for genuine human connection we decided to try something really crazy and to coordinate efforts in creating Viral Sessions: Chapter 2, in which every volunteer could participate.

A total number of 141 amazing artists, 5 cats and 1 parrot from 6 of Earth’s continents have answered our call, played and danced their hearts out straight from their homes in this set of traditional Irish reels.

What we did here together is brilliant beyond measure! We can’t thank you enough! You are all legends!  <3

Names of the tunes: Earl’s Chair / Sporting Paddy / Silver Spear

The situation of this global isolation is a very difficult moment in history. With hope that this video reaches many people, we would like to send out these messages to you out there:

– You are not alone. There are people who care about you.
– Take good care of your body and mental health. Help others!
– Due to the isolation, many artists all over the world lost their sources of income overnight. Please, think of them, let them know you appreciate their work and help them out. Support especially your local independent artists, who may struggle now much more than the top earning superstars.
– Even before the pandemic most artists used to work in unhealthy, stressful, unpredictable conditions for incredibly low salaries. Please, in the next elections consider voting for structural change for artists to be able to afford at least a basic standard of living, health and life stability, so that they can continue bringing magic to this world without uncertainty about their own future.

Music and dance make a difference. We make a difference together, united, despite the distance.
