My music on French TV show: ‘Entre Ciel Et Terre: Jordanie’

I’m very excited to see that my music is now featured on French TV several times a month! The track used is called ‘Uneasy Dreams’ and is part of the soundtrack for ‘Entre Ciel Et Terre: Jordanie’ – currently broadcast on channels such as TV5Monde and Ushuaia TV.

This programme investigates the mysterious Lost City of Petra – a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the ‘New 7 Wonders Of The World’.

It’s not very straightforward to watch it in this country (although you may find it online), and so I hope my French friends enjoy it! If I find a way, I will make sure to share any clips.

Also look out for any clips from ‘Open Skies’ – A Czech Republic TV show that has picked up the same composition.
