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
