JAZZ CONCERT IN LAUSANNE - SWITZERLAND , "THEATRE DE BEAULIEU", 06 JUNE 2003
Art is another way of resting from work while indirectly sharing feelings in a social context. It always takes two people for there to be an art experience.. The creator of the work of art and the receiver, who can be a spectator or a listener. The artist creates while the other receives. This is the aspect which is particular to art, in that it is experienced passively; for being entertained through art means having nothing to do, it is enough just to look and listen in order to feel pleasure and to be entertained. That no effort is needed, because the artist is in full control, is exactly what separates artistic activity from activity of other kinds.
Francis MBELLA, Guest of Honour, with Doctor Gabs and his band, Rhoda Scott and Robert Palmer
