Hip-hop from yurts

Mongolia. What are the first things that come to your mind? Nothing? For me – nomads gallop throughout the grasslands on one of the best horses in the world. Falconry.

Liminal spaces “A journey to the edges of reality.”

The place where you find yourself now is so vast, empty of any presence… as if everything there was set there just for you. You might feel free to do as you please or finally find serenity outside […]

Librat – si miqtë tanë

Librat – një stil i jashtëzakonshëm arti që ka ekzistuar që nga krijimi i vetë shoqërisë.
