“MusiKaravan brings the energy of a concert hall into the intimacy of a special musical bonding experience. It creates a musical safe-zone that offers a humanness that is crucial in our society, sharing a true and liberating moment of life. This experience has proved itself to be a life-changing extension of my artistic values and will continue to shine brighter than ever as I join Thor and the dream team of The Soraya.”—Etienne Gara
