It doesn't matter if you play an Oud, a Guitarrn, a Nyckelharpa or a Guitar.
When you pick up your instrument and start to play, the world disappears and you get lost in the sounds.
Music ties us together like a thread through our hearts.
Our skin is many colors but music is our blood, our bones and our soul."
