What do you like most about playing live? The best concert I have ever been to was a show by Portuguese artist Antonio Zambujo in Helsinki, Finland because it was just so beautiful and honest. What I love the most about playing live is connecting with people present, it’s pretty hard to describe into words. My favorite thing it’s in that very moment when you know the people you are sining to are not only listening to you but feeling what you are feeling that’s when you know the connection is made and it’s just magical.
