The music calls for unity in these divided times and for a culture of valuing the earth and nature. ‘We’ve penned the new music to express the hope that our fractured and divided world can forge a new identity where we stand and work together – a world where other’s interests are as important as your own, as if we were one like in the supercontinent Pangaea – it’s the Spring of a New Age, new beginnings indeed. We look forward to taking your imagination on an adventure! ’ Wouter and David said.
