This past Thursday evening I was an attandee to Sid Shanti's "Glorious Ibiza Food (& Music!)" Launch Party at the island renowned Atzaró. The cook inspired Dj was present along with a large crowd of known, unknown and interesting faces, some of which were remarkable to meet. To give the party it's intended Ibicencan sense a traditional folkloric 'ball pagés' took place as the hunter's of the isle, Podencos, and all those interested, which were many, watched. Oddly enough, through a whole 8 years of residency here I had never seen a dance been performed, and odd it is. This did not stop the whole sense of a true Ibiza party some of Ibiza's resident Djs such as Antz, Andy Wilson, Jon Sa Trinxa and Daisy Heartbreaker took their turn to do their thing. On the book related food and beverage outlook were stalls for wine, coffee even fruit tasting to be tasted from island distributors. Sid himself personally and happily signed all books purchased on the night which came with a free tote bag, which I have an extreme fetish for, in a couple different designs.
