Music, vitality and a zest for life radiate from within her, For Bea Palya singing is a key that can unlock the dorrs separiting different peoples, genres and communities. With no make-up and an open heart she flitters like a free bird. Her latest concert, one thousand and one sephardic nights, took place at the Dohány street Synagogue as part of the Jewish Summer Festival. October sees the publication of her first book, Red currant dream, as well as an album with the same title. Both are being showcased at a concert in the Palace of Arts in December.
'I „use“ the traditional music to tell my stories, to shout out my emotion, to tell my secrets. Actually, I do not do anything else like the peasants did in the old times. Anyhow, music is to tell emotions, goes from belly to belly. Just like any people: a little piece of mirror in everybody’s face. So.. myself. Again. This is a courage to daring to see that you are responsible for your own reality, actually you are creating that in every moment. That‘s how you meet - or avoid - people, love, friend, work, collegues, landscape, animal, good or bed taxidriver.'
- The final message of this album is that everything moves and yet there’s perfect stillness. - There’s nothing I can add to this.
Having coffee and ranting about EU paragraphs against discrimination on boring mornings, having lunch for breast cancer screening or being photographed by the media to protect poor children – this all does good to make others think about the issues but I still had the feeling something was missing. I wanted to do something. I thought, wrote, produced articles and talked to my creative friends about it, and came to the conclusion that equal opportunities is about self-consciousness and love. Opportunities are never equal, so the answers also have to be individual and tailored to the person. For this you have to learn to dream in order to create your own chances, and recognise your own strengths. In the disadvantages we can also see the challenges of a higher order – God, fate and alike.
"...I’m sure that once a month I’ll come up with something new and keep the club as a regular forum for it" - said Bea about her very intimate club evenings in 2008. "I am enjoying it very much and that’s what really matters."
