On the Linz Europe Tour 2007 I looked forward to: making good music and meeting different cultures.

In 2008 I was eager ... to see the further development of the band and crew, for a new wonderful adventure, to see the people we would meet, the weather in northern Europe and for our new music.

Did you know that ... my mother tongue is Ladin and is nowadays only spoken by about 100,000 people!
