I have joined you to my group which was started by a musical partner of mine who lives in Greece... we have been raising funds for the poor souls fleeing the guns and wars.
I have some friends doing a lot of work out on several islands and we are going there in a few months to do some practical stuff and a concert.
The album isn't everyones cup of tea but my track is getting the most downloads and it has had some really good reviews. I go under the name of Karyae.
