Why do people make music?

Well, it’s not only me and Micky who are willing to make some music in a spontaneous and improvisational way. There were people who did that before us and there will be people who will succeed us. The concept is simple: a few musicians meet up and play. If they can play, that’s great! Maybe … Continue reading Why do people make music? Continue reading
