Currently Andrei is focused on music composition, his style being heavily influenced by nature, universe and meditative music; his intention as an artist is that of reconnecting people to the nature of the universe.
Through me the universe is passing on positive vibrations, love is radiating through every sound I play.
Writing music comes from within: it’s like taking a walk in a breathing, green forest, searching for the ultimate truth.
Through my music I’m expressing my love and appreciation for the universe and all that’s surrounding me.
My style is heavily influenced by nature, universe and meditative music: my intention as an artist is that of reconnecting people to the core of the universe.
The album “Roots” is based on music coming from deep inside my soul, deep feelings. The inspiration of this album is the beautiful nature and the strong power of the universe, and the intention of this music is to create a piece of heaven in the eart of the people who listen to it, and these people to give this positive energy forward to their dear ones.
