« A Basketball playground can be a place where time and space vanishes to let the game bring its magic and see souls connect... A powerful space where complete strangers from another time, another culture can create real friendship... » Rami Mekdachi
« We’ve travelled always finding basketball courts and people to play music with.  Everywhere we go, our love of basketball and music are our way of being with new people.  We play as complete strangers, but each time at the end of the game, we’ve met a new person, maybe a new friend or a musicians with whom We will jam and record a song. » Noé Mekdachi
