Watching TED Talks is a popular pastime at CN&CO. We visit regularly to clear our heads, have a laugh or get inspired. TED Talks open our minds, spark new ways of thinking and can lead to some very interesting conversations. Each week we pick a favourite and publish it on a Tuesday, because we like how “TED Talk Tuesday” sounds. This week we hear from Rikus Kok, and why he loves music.

“Music is all around us… all you have to do is listen” – August Rush –

This has always been one of my favourite sayings in life. Music is the one language that every single person understands. It connects people, makes you forget about your worries, it makes you feel happy when you are down. But music is so much more… have a look at this TED Talk by Anika Paulson about music and life.
