“Once upon a time, there was a life in which nature was more harmonies, people used to live accordance with himself and nature just before a world order in which the population of human being was ever-increasing , the natural reserves and resources was decreasing and ecological matters were continuously mounting.
We, as the ones who are interested in different fields of the art current period, are in the belief of reintegration with our roots by transforming our communication with nature into a relationship and based with love and respect, with the help of universal support of music and art, and also remembering our bond with each other.”
