About Return of the Troubadour

Art, music, literature, and film can set us free. It is all too easy to succumb to the illusion that we are powerless to transform our lives and the world around us, but it is just that - an illusion. We can make a difference. We can raise our voices and change the world. It sounds simple, but that’s because the best ideas are. We just have to make a start.

Each of us at Return of the Troubadour believe that we - as both individuals and collectively - can make a difference in our world, through the pursuit of the arts, a process of collaboration and above all; song.

Human beings are more than cogs in a machine. If we explore our potential together, then each and every one of us can discover that the spark of light within us can blossom into a radiance brighter than a thousand suns. There is a transformative role for each of us as we shape our new future.

At this point, we’d like to give you a little background on who we are and how we came together to create Return of the Troubadour.

We are a group of like-minded people who have given a lot of thought about the state of today’s world. We decided to share our ideas with some well-known artists, people we thought might be open to our way of thinking. We feel they can inspire humanity and guide us.

“Don’t play what’s there,
play what’s not there.”

- Miles Davis
