A sublime piece of jazz by three-fingered lightening Django Reinhardt. A song to accompany warm summer evenings under the stars, while a sultry zephyr blows in from the south. A mirage of magic carpet rides, snake-charmers, gold-toothed soothsayers and fleets of shimmering caravans appearing above the campfire, and your feet uncontrollably tap-tap-tapping. Watch out for the devilish sorcery wrangling its way into your hips.

Features in the 2000 movie “Chocolat”, as Johnny Depp and his troop of vagabonds wash up on the riverbank of a provincial French village and make merry mischief with chocolate shop owner Juliette Binoche, slowly enticing the church-going citizens to satisfy their lust for sweet things. –Gabriella Kane

Video of the day

What we want are individual, personal contributions from lawyers and legal sector professionals working from home. You could be demonstrating a recipe, videoing your daily run, telling a joke, singing us a song, showing off a skill, or just telling us about your day and what you’ve been up to. We are very open to creativity – anything that uplifts or diverts.

What we don’t want is too many firm-branded videos talking about how seamlessly you have transitioned to a new way of working, please.
