"Music celebrates the similarity of human kind, it stresses what unites us as human beings. Love, pain, hope, grief, happiness, despair and all the other feelings are essentially human. We’re not the same – how boring is that?! We are equal, though. And in the times we live in, where they try to convince us that we are not equal, it is revolutionary."

Christian Ronig: Greece Is…
