Two to Tango
Sometimes it is sheer love for music that tends to bind two people together. Such is the case of Denis Plante and David Jacques. It was no other name than David’s that Denis had heard when he went out on a search for a passionate musician. Although their instruments are as different as chalk and cheese, it has been the sheer love for music that has bound them together. In Chandigarh for the closing of the Mois De La Francophonie, organised by Alliance Française, the duo say they perform their creations around the world. His sea-green eyes move into oblivion as Denis Boreal starts talking about his life partner Bandoneon.

Healthy food consists of bright coloured fruit and veggies, whole grains, beans, nuts and soya products. Foods containing antioxidants and fibre would also help your heart, irrespective of your age or condition.
