Q&A with UK band of The Cinelli Brothers, a rising force on the music scene; an amalgam of blues, rock and soul,

"I believe that the 60’s and the 70’s were magnificent years for the British scene. The most important bands in the world came out of those years, and it was revolutionary. Much of that audience lives still, and they transmit the passion for live music to their children and grandchildren. I have seen it at the CB’s shows."

Q&A with Greek band of Omonoia Circus; hand-made real music, psychedelic, jazz, and progressive rock

It can open galaxies of space. It is infinite. In fact it is not much different that music and where music and poetry join, magic can result."
