“My music is a blend between several traditions, various spiritualties and finally my music is one.
I also feel that my music is a call for those who wish to reflect upon time, who wish to take time by listening to music and also who are bare foot…meaning this is a call for people who like to be connected with the Earth.
Ultimately my music is combining various vibrations, energies and rhythms in a playful yet engaging way. So this is where I am with my voice, my piano and my Art.”
