I found a nice surprise this morning, when I discovered the nice video I attached below. There's a project initiated by a group of friends, based on the concept of artists uniting for charitable acts. The website is www.aitalent.ro and each year we make a series of live recording sessions where a lot of musicians are invited. In 2011 there was a break unfortunately and the video shot in 2010 was released just this week - the one in this post.

In this one, we had the honor and opportunity of performing alongside a tremendous musician - Tim Thompson, the Fingerstyle Guitar Champion in 2008 in the USA. The guy playing bass, has performed with Steve Vai in Bucharest and Rimini and the vocalist is part of a famous all girl rock band in here.

The idea behind this vid, is to promote the fact that companies can re-direct their 2% of the taxes towards the Up-Down association, which supports children suffering from the Down Syndrome. Those kids were all there when we shot and it was a bit heart breaking honestly (yes, I am a crybaby) but it felt good to know that we can do something for them. Now we will share this vid and hope that as many companies out there will help out in the way stated above.

Hope you guys like it smile.gif
