It was really a great honour for us to be included in a list of such talented artists as the one of the BB trust winners. This award and recognition was absolutely unexpected and confirms the hard work that has been done by the Trio. What we are most proud of is that BB trust leads its winners towards understanding the complicated ways to achieve international recognition, focusing in particular both on their artistic improvement and their relationships in the wider commercial music world. In a context where you often are left alone, BB trust makes you feel accompanied with courtesy and discretion.
