Italian mothers, especially those of some time ago, are famous for the particular care, shall we say, of the nutritional side of family life. The warmness, at times overwhelming, the total commitment to their kitchen and to the feeding of the family, have made them icons.

Séga Sidibé est un des plus grand joueurs de djembé du Mali. (Afrique de l’Ouest). Il sait faire « parler » le djembé et surtout il est un des garant de la tradition de la percussion au Mali. Né en 1942 à Fougamana dans la région du Wassoulou au Sud du Mali, il apprends à jouer le djembé aux côtés de Toumani Balo, le batteur de village. A l’age de 17 ans Séga s’installe à Bamako et commence à jouer avec les jeunes batteurs pendant les mariages. Sa réputation de djembéfola talentueux l’ayant précédé, il devient très vite un soliste très recherché pour animer les nombreuses manifestations à Bamako.
Composition is the manner pieces or components are combined and arranged visually to tell a story. Proper composition considers alignment, grouping, placement, space, and visual flow within a layout.
