ART AS A BUILDING BRIDGE

HUMANITY FIRST

Dust of Soul works together with musicians & artists all over the world – there have been fusions so far in the countries of Tunisia, Oman, Italy, Germany, and Switzerland – to set a sign for the humanity. This is how various cultural events with a focus on music are created to build bridges between nations. Music is neutral and has the power to connect people in their hearts, creating a peaceful atmosphere, establishing friendships that last for eternity and inspire them to interact with each other.

The beginning of something big

VIDEO MESSAGE
