And it's thanks to my wonderful musicians that I could give a new life to my old melodies and also to create completely new songs. Now it's time to record it and produce an album. To share it with you, we need funds, and that is why I decided to start this crowdfunding. All this can happen only with your help. I invite you to share with us this beautiful artistic adventure. I am very happy that it's gonna be an occasion to exchange, to share and to create together."
