He is a professional piano tuner and takes care of Marc Vella's Yamaha Grand Piano. Marc Vella is a french musician and a nomadic pianist. Over the last 25 years he has travelled with his piano in around forty countries to celebrate humanity. Creator of “La Caravane amoureuse” (The Caravan of Love) he takes people with him to say “I love you” to others and “lovingly conquered” their hearts and souls. The Omo Valley, situated in Africa’s Great Rift Valley, is home to an estimated 200,000 indigenous peoples who have lived there for millennia. Amongst them are 1,000 to 2,000 Karo who dwell on the eastern banks of the Omo river. Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples' Region (often abbreviated as SNNPR) is one of the nine ethnic divisions of Ethiopia. 8.11.15 © 2015 Didier Ruef
