Five years ago, I moved to London to study at the Royal College of Music. I graduated there in 2014, went on to do my Master at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and now I am celebrating the fact that besides being an exciting and historical city, London represents a wonderful mix of people and cultures making it all the more enjoyable to be a freelance musician. I am celebrating that I am meeting new people every day, and that I can work with artists from various countries. I am celebrating that everyone can contribute something different to the music we are making and the art we are creating, because they have been brought up in different cultures, with different traditions and views. I am celebrating that London is a place that connects people from all over the world, and a forum which allows us to get to know our fellow human beings. Most people want to go to another country for their holidays. Not only because we are seeking the sun and the sea, but also because we want to see more of the world than just the place in which we grew up. Why would anyone not want to embrace the fact that, in this day and age, connecting the world is so much easier? Everyone has different beliefs of human history and what will happen after we die. Nobody knows any of that for sure. But what we know for sure is that we live on this planet right now. And to make the most out of it, we should try to explore as much of it as possible. In nature and in humankind.
