Kisa pada, trava raste - Folk Song
Every time it rains, I sing this Croatian lullaby to Koko.
Rain is a powerful reminder of our fertile nature, and in Balkan tradition it has been worshiped by powerful rituals - as Marina Abramovic so nicely reminded us in her video Balkan Erotic Epic. It was raining when Koko was born and I feel a special connection with the rain. It makes me feel at home everywhere I am.
