Climate change conference at Spier – 20 October 2011

We had the honour of playing for the Climate Change Conference at Spier,hosted by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation.This was the precursor to the Durban Climate Change conference.Representatives of 42 countries attended these Pre-COP Ministerial Consultations.The meeting was chaired by Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane,incoming President of COP 17/CMP7.

In her speech,the Minister shared some of the impressions she had formed after the consultations which had taken place,and some of the expectations and hopes for the upcoming Durban Climate CHange Conference.

With all our hearts,we wish the delegates wisdom and success in finding sustainable climate solutions for all of us.

The Hungarian Trio played all sorts of international tunes for these ministers and delegates from all over the world,interspersed of course with splendid African tunes.Our favourite is Ntyilo,Ntyilo.This means Little Bird-a very beautiful tune.
