music represents moody reality of life and hope for the better
"Music is the way of communication with people. You want
anyone to hear the words you singing, and the hope appears
that those words can be helpful to someone. Besides, everyone
wants to immortalize himself - to make a stroke on the Stone
of Life. We do not seek everlasting life, we want to give a
sense to what we are doing... There is such a little and great
wish that people come to our concerts, understand us, and be
sincere like we are."
