Dror Feiler… one of the most amazing musician, activist and artist!

I owe him BIG time! for it all!

”Den politiska, eller revolutionära, sprängkraften ligger i att utmana invanda mönster. På det sättet är min musik alltid politisk även om det inte är explicit. Den bygger på revolt.”

hopefully his saxophone will be brought back to him soon… Dror neads his axe!!!

FIGHT IT ALL!!!!

LOUD!!!!
