A word from Alex

I am cheerfully honored to let you know that, as of today, I have the wonderful and incommensurable privilege to be the new owner, alongside my best friend and faithful accomplice Jeff, of the highly esteemed and renowned boutique hotel La Maison de Tanger, located in the heart of the old city. This is a dream I have had for quite some time now, a project we actively started working on last March and that became an improbable reality only a few weeks ago.

And, if it wasn’t already incredible enough of a realization in itself, August 2nd marks the 5th anniversary of the moment I first drifted to Tangier, in what was a period of great desperation for me. I wasn’t only emotionally worn out, physically exhausted and spiritually hopeless, but also unable to see many more reasons to keep on going with my existence any longer. It was undeniably the lowest point of an endless free-falling bleakness for me. And to say that I have been welcomed by the dazzling nature of the city after drifting for so long would be an understatement.

So, it’s an uplifting sensation for me to presently write this message while soaking in the singular vibe of the city and looking at its luxuriantly dreamy bay, sitting on the hotel’s terrace, located only a few rooftops away where I used to sit 5 years ago mourning my father’s passing, trying to find answers to questions I had never had the courage to ask myself before, hoping to make sense of it all. Those reflections are what would eventually give life to my first album “Windows in the Sky”.

Don’t give up… Tangier, which has been abandonment so many times in the past, now offers a stunning sight for everyone to behold, blazing and radiant like never before.

Alex Henry Foster, owner of La Maison de Tanger

If some could see this new endeavor as some sort of full circle, I foresee that adventure as a fabulous opportunity to offer an unbelievably soulful shelter to anyone looking for a place to rest, to mourn, to reimagine their lives, to design or redesign their personal journey, as much as embrace life, love, friendship and whatever we might want to define our upcoming seasons with. And who knows, we may have the exhilarating happiness to witness a new generation of writers, painters, musicians, and visionaries who may be inspired by the generosity of the city and impacted by the people who make Tangier one of the most beautifully unique places in the world, always-evolving.

I have faith in the city’s human and cultural entity, where everyone is someone, where every visitor is invited to be an everlasting friend, no matter who we were when we initially drifted at its feet, always welcome to return regardless of who we may have become after our passage in its midst. All transformed, if only a little, by its fluid essence. At least that’s what Tangier is for me, and for so many others as well: a timeless yet eternal city of refuge that flows in its own rhythm… Free.    

I wish that news and its hopeful unlikeliness come as a comforting encouragement for you, my dear and precious friends. It’s one of the so many others living testimonies that not all possibilities of revivification and restoration are forever lost, even when we are unable to find ourselves nor able to find a reason to believe tomorrow could ever come with just enough promises for dawn to rise anew. Don’t give up… Tangier, which has been abandonment so many times in the past, now offers a stunning sight for everyone to behold, blazing and radiant like never before.

Much love, Alex

Thank you for your generosity for Morocco


In the name of everyone at Hopeful Tragedy Records, La Maison de Tanger, The Long Shadows, and In De Goot Entertainment,

On this 75th anniversary of the Human Rights Day, I’m profoundly humbled to announce that thanks to your incredibly heartfelt generosity and your active empathic mobilization, we’ve not only been able to give 5000$ in donations to the Moroccan Red Cross, the High Atlas Foundation, and the Banque Alimentaire but also to distribute thousands of postcards with words of support. We teamed up with dear friends and local associations in order to provide necessary basic kits such as blankets, socks, warm clothing, water, food, and tents to the numerous people affected by the earthquakes that occurred in the southern part of Morocco on September 8th and who are now facing the implacable reality of winter.

It’s truly a privilege for me, my collaborators, representatives, and loved ones to be part of a family composed of individuals as extraordinary as you, always engaged in turning compassion into action, ever willing to make a difference in other people’s lives, in your community, or in places of needs where you can have an impact, may it be by giving financially, offering a bit of your time, writing a message, or any possible way you can. You are profoundly inspiring.

Let’s keep on being a hopeful voice and a benevolent presence in a world that seems to become more and more cynical with every new human catastrophe and natural disaster we have to communally deal with and personally process the reality of.

May you be blessed, my precious friends.
