“For me, music is the milieu in which I discovered myself. There is an appropriate song for each and every kind of feeling, for joy, sorrow, or more complex feelings. A song helps to immerse yourself and move on. For me, music is remedy. And folk songs are the best possible medicine. They reflect what is right, and they help me recover myself- I would like to share this with the people around me.”
