Article culture project "#coronaesgehtwas"

I recently wrote an article for the "#coronaesgehtwas" project. This is a solidarity project for the culture industry, which has been severely affected by the COVID crisis. Creative artists coming from diverse (geographical and professional) backgrounds get their say and their statements are then carried out into the world. Culture is important!

PRIM China tour 2019

Me and my PRIM band mates had a wonderful China tour 2019. We enjoyed traveling through this interesting, also very contrasting, country and seeing several cities (Beijing, Changsha, Ningbo). In addition, we had an involved audience at every concert and were very warmly received. Will love to do this again! Thank you at this point to Jincan "69" and our agency "DDL (Dusk Dawn Label)" for the organization. I would also like to thank the Austrian Cultural Forum Beijing for their support.
