October is Black History Month and, just like last year, I had the pleasure to celebrate the occasion with my music for British Airways. This time, I performed at three different locations. I started at the corporate offices of British Airways, based in Waterside. The next week, people caught me playing the sax at Terminal 5 of London Heathrow, and the week after that, I went to Terminal 3.
After my recent trips to the Czech Republic and France, you’d say I should be tired of travelling and flights, but nothing could be further from the truth. No matter at what side of the airport I am, movement is always energising! As you can see in the photo below, I looked like any other enthusiastic traveller while carrying my equipment around, haha.
Speaking of travellers, the feeling I got when they stopped for a minute to listen to my music instead of hurrying to catch their flight was great —although I pray none of them missed their planes, of course. Hopefully, too, these performances enhanced the experience of both the personnel and the visitors of the airport, while also bringing awareness and reflection over Black History Month.
Many thanks to British Airways for booking me. I look forward to our next collaboration!
I’ll be posting some videos and photos from the different performances in the upcoming weeks. If you want to see some preview content, make sure to follow me on Instagram.
