"Today we can make music with computers, but the computer has always existed in the minds of composers. "

Our last song 'Gold' is about the smell of gold of all those persons who exhibit themselves with gold, while they are responsible for the blood and pain of those who extract it! We should also mention 'Free at last' anthem to freedom to our need to feel free and good with ourselves, even for a moment ...Recently “ Cold song “ a new approach of the famous opera song from Purcell .
