“There is no doubt concerning the overload of the planet, and no doubt about the Hope, as well. Working on this project has meant a huge effort to translate my love for the planet, and my great hope, into music. I will always thank Mark and the whole staff for this opportunity. Until then, we will be hoping we will make music, and where there is music, there will be hope.”
