10425084_741772969208170_8005398657546526722_nWe just launched a Kickstarter campaign for our new album “Yerakina”! We want to complete this musical project as fast as possible so that the world can enjoy it in the summer, along with the crickets and starry nights and fireflies, so we only have 9 more days to reach our $15,000 goal! Visit our Kickstarter Campaign today, contribute, and be the first ones to receive copies of the album, exclusive t-shirts, copies of scores and much more!
