"Music in Europe like in India is an expression of soul. We use different instruments, different techniques but music is international and we want to give this to audience." Giuseppe Lo Sardo, an artist
"I think it was pretty amazing. The music played out and everything else. You really don't need to know the story but you hear it from the music and when you see the visuals, everything is set out there." Vianca Laloo, an audience.
European music was much appreciated by the audience.
The universal language of music united and bonded the people of Shillong and the artists, who got a chance to enrich their knowledge of a new culture. (ANI)
