Young,Social and Contemporary

We are not just a music orchestra

Young Europeans have come together, using the power of art and music to discuss the contemporary issues of Europe and the world's current issues on the humanity's most brutal and tragic agenda. A voice as a breath of existence and shows the universal language of music in the message.
