Life can be surprising at times, and so can be music. Sometimes the most powerful and unique synergies come from casual and unexpected situations during unforeseen times. Sometimes it happens that two talented artists, during a global pandemic, on the opposite sides of the planet, cross their paths and start creating that unexpected, surprising, and powerful music.

With their second song, “Shadow,” these two incredible artists realized they were vibrating at the same frequency.
